Werther

tt was a beautiful performance, by everyone, but especially Jonas Kaufmann as Werther.The character of Charlotte was also well defined. It is a very sad opera, but it was made sadder by the fact that the last scene was ruined because the sound went off because of some technical fault.

Werther

The opera was great until the last 10 minutes when the sound went out until the end of the opera. This is the second time we have been to Coconut Point and experienced mechanical problems. When we went to Rusalka one of the auditoriums received the satellite signal but unfortunately we were in the auditorium that did not receive the signal and never got to see any of the opera.

Werther (Metropolitan Opera in HD)

Everything about this production was fabulous, but the very top award has to go to tenor Jonas Kaufmann. I have been for several decades a "groupie" of Placido Domingo but now that he has practically retired from singing, I am switching to Jonas. In this hyper-romantic opera, he will send shivers up your spine, make you cry, make you believe in his almost impossible character. Effortlessly moving from pianissimo moments of aching tenderness to wrenching full-voice cries of passion and pain. Jonas IS Werther.

MET HD Werther

I absolutely loved this HD film! I went to the opera itself, and the editing with its closeups and different angles made the film an equally great—even better—experience! I am going back to see it again in the encore performance Wednesday!

disappointed

The music was beautiful but the climax was disappointing because the sound was missing in the last act. Left the death scene lacking and a real let down.
