Thank heaven for the encore

If I only saw one Met HD opera this season, this is the one I wanted to see. LOVED IT! Always expect Kaufmann to be great, but Sophie Koch was marvelous. Tough to stand in for Elina Garanca - but not a problem for Sophie.

This was my first try at The Metropolitan Opera in HD. It was excellent. Kaufman was not only a great singer but also a great actor. I recommend it highly. Burt Reyer

Hey, it's Jonas Kaufmann

To me Werther is all about the third act; even so it's worth sitting through the first two for that sublime if bloody ending. But when you add a tenor of the caliber of Kauffman it makes it doubly worth the wait, and Sophie Koch was a worthy counterpoint. This was a winner.

Divide the world into two classes: those who have seen this production and those who have not. I'd hate to be in the class of those who have not.

Werhter

The hero suffers greatly and , at times is hard to take, but , in the second half, all the previous suffering climaxes stirringly. Great cast. Charming direction, sets, singing. Can't take your eyes off lead. Romantic. More a woman's weeper. But, still, because of the artistry, if you can deal with 19th century melodrama, worth it.
