Screening at Mwldan on March 18, 7pm, tenor Jonas Kaufmann will star in the title role of the tortured poet in the Met’s new production of Massenet’s Werther.
Richard Eyre, whose hit production of Bizet’s Carmen premiered at the Met in 2010, returns to direct the new staging, which will be conducted by Alain Altinoglu.
French mezzo-soprano Sophie Koch will make her Met debut as Charlotte, the object of Werther’s unrequited love, in a cast that also includes Lisette Oropesa as Sophie, Serbian bass-baritone David Bi?i? in his Met debut as Albert, and Jonathan Summers as Le Bailli. The production will feature sets and costumes by Tony Award winner Rob Howell, lighting design by Peter Mumford, video design by Wendall Harrington, and choreography by Sara Erde in her Met debut.
