Magnificent!!
15 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

I had read about Werther while doing other research and decided that I would watch it if I ever came across it. I found this edition and it had one of my favorite tenors Jonas Kaufmann in it, so I HAD to watch it. This opera is so good with amazing music. I bet if you are an opera lover you will recognize Werther's aria "Pourquoi me réveiller?". This telecast also gives the viewers a backstage look during the production ( you see the singers being cued to go on stage and preparing for their scenes). Sometimes this can be disorienting, because you don't know if this shot is part of the actual opera. There are multiple shots, one from the cat walk stage left and right. Again Massenet's music is amazing and acting great! A must watch!
