Jules Massenet — Werther: Festspielhaus Baden‐Baden

About the Event

Immerse yourself in the stunning architecture of Baden‐Baden's breathtaking Festspielhaus for the ultimate concert set to awake your understanding of classical music.

A theatrical material of the finest, as if made for the Canadian director Robert Carsen, who does a lot in France and whose scenic language is understood all over the world. His 'Ring des Nibelungen,' staged in Cologne, was shown not only in Shanghai but also at the EXPO. This 'Werther' is also likely to be a theatrical feast: with highly melodious arias that one immediately wants to whistle a musical theme of fate that gradually unfolds its down‐stretching power plus a narrative sophistication that reliably exerts its effect.
