A touchstone of unrequited romantic love, the poet Werther’s tortured longings for the married Charlotte leads to his tragic fate. After more than 40 years, this French opera returns with an all-star cast of HGO Studio alumni - Arturo Chacón-Cruz in the title role, Ana María Martínez as the target of this obsession, and Joshua Hopkins as her husband. HGO Artistic and Music Director Patrick Summers conducts Massenet’s lush score, which beautifully expresses the heartache of love.
