An Opéra de Paris production.

The Greek National Opera will present a great world-class artistic event in May 2020. Jules Massenet’s Werther brings the top mezzo-soprano of our time, Anita Rachvelishvili, to the Greek National Opera. She will tackle for the first time in her career the role of Charlotte in an already legendary production directed by the great French film director Benoît Jacquot.

One of the most popular operas in the French repertoire, Werther was written about a century after Goethe’s epistolary novel of the same title, upon which it is based, and it describes the dead-end love story between young Werther and Charlotte. The operatic Werther, which was met with huge success when it was written and has been translated in many languages and influenced the morals and fashion of the time, follows its own rules, keeping a distance from the original. It preserves the conflict with the social environment and social conventions, but sets aside the philosophical questions. The story of Goethe’s hero inspired the French composer to write music of high lyricism and rare tenderness, with intense dramatic outbursts.
