Voices were wonderful, but death scene was so prolonged that it became an object of amusement for the audience.

Great opera...the singers playing Werther and Charlotte have strong voices that are sincere and emotionally moving!!! The opera loses you into a world of emotion, heart break, and final reconciliation!!

Stunning music, beautifully performed by a very talented cast. It made for a most enjoyable afternoon, and I would definitely recommend WNO's production.

Although this Opera was not filled with action, it was filled with passion! We enjoyed it! And events at the Kennedy Center are always amazing!

I loved the singing, which was mostly very good. Francesco Meli did a fabulous job as Werther. The directing left something to be desired, especially in Act 4, where the dying Werther and Charlotte were both not blocked well. People were actually...continued
