This was wonderful except for the last 10 minutes there was no sound. The most dramatic part of the whole opera. He is dying in his loves arms. The words were up on the screen but there was no sound. I know this was not the theater's fault but it sure was disappointing.

WERTHER

If you are interested in seeing and hearing an opera - this would be the one to go to! It was AWESOME!! The title role sung by Jonas Kaufmann was stellar! He is unbelievable, the power and strength of his voice, along with his passionate acting! All the singers were great, but Jonas, the lead tenor, was UNsurpassed! I cannot say enough - Be SURE to go to the encore showing this week on Wed. Mar 19th, at 6:30 pm (local time). You will NOT be disappointed! Werther is a timeless tragedy, so be sure to bring a tissue. It is a very moving story of deep love, combined with wonderful scenery and set - and very innovative use of video and film, for special effects! I was impressed with all aspects - costumes, visual, orchestra, singers, the whole package! WERTHER is a WINNER!!! GO FOR IT - - DON'T MISS IT !!! - Andrea in VA

This my first time to see this opera; I enjoyed very much. At first impression, I thought the set was a little austere . Soon however I came to enjoy it adaptability to the profession of the opera immensely. The lead performers, Charlotte, Werther and Sophie were great and readily drew me into the mood as it changed over time.

HD failure

This is a superb production and cast. Very strong lyrical performance by Jonas Kaufman,demonstrating why he is one of the finest sought-after tenors today. The Met HD system lost sound in the final 5-6 minutes, which caused the audience to be quite upset, since it was a one-time, live performance.

Outstanding performance. Singing superb. However, the last 10 minutes of the opera were mute, no sound at the Regal movie house in Naples, Florida. Very disappointing.
