Opera Idaho presents Massenet's Werther

Opera Idaho presents Massenet's Werther

Jules Massenet’s Werther is a tender love story of a poet who would rather die than be without the woman he loves. With hauntingly beautiful melodies throughout, one act alone contains two of the greatest arias in the repertoire: Charlotte’s aria ‘Va! Laisse couler mes larmes’ and Werther’s ‘Pourquoi me rèveiller’. In their sentimental power and melodic richness these arias encapsulate the qualities that account for the universal popularity of this great work. The opera is loosely based on the German epistolary novel The Sorrows of Young Werther by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, which was based both on fact and on Goethe's own early life. The production is the first time this or any of Massenet’s operas have been presented by Opera Idaho.
