Behind the Scenes with Werther

Ahead of its performance here on Sat 22 April, enjoy this look behind the scenes of Werther with director Sophie Motley and mezzo-soprano Niamh O’Sullivan.

Full of heartbreak and romance, Massenet transforms the love triangle of Goethe’s hugely influential novel into a hauntingly gentle and lyrical opera that sensitively traces the unfolding of a hopeless passion.
