Irish National Opera presents Massenet Werther

A masterly and nuanced portrayal of hopeless love. Werther, the young poet, Charlotte, the woman he loves and his best friend Albert, to whom she is engaged. Massenet transforms the triangle of Goethe’s hugely influential novel of impossible love into a hauntingly gentle and lyrical opera that sensitively traces the unfolding of a hopeless passion. So hopeless that, when Charlotte’s hot and cold feelings cause her to turn away from Werther yet again, tragedy cannot be averted.

Suitable for ages 12A | Trigger warnings: Themes of an adult nature and suicide.

Tickets €30 / €27 (plus €1.50 booking fee per ticket)
