See all dates for Werther
Werther: Scottish Opera
Massenet's opera is an adaptation of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's epistolary novel Die Leiden des jungen Werthers (The Sorrows of Young Werther).
Werther has escaped the city to concentrate on developing his painting. He finds himself in a rural idyll that offers all the inspiration he could ever desire, including a perfect muse in Charlotte.
But she is promised to another, a man who seems to be everything Werther is not. As Werther's infatuation grows, he is driven to ask himself the ultimate question: what is life without her?
The theatrical staging brings to life a timeless testament to the destructive power of obsessive love.
Scottish Opera is Scotland’s national opera company and the largest performing arts organisation in Scotland. They are committed to bringing the widest possible range of opera, performed to the highest possible standards, to the maximum audience throughout Scotland and the UK.
