They only allow bottled water inside the theatre, so if you get a drink that isn't water at intermission, make sure you have time to drink it. Drinks and snacks are expensive, so if you can do without your pocketbook will be happier!

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.
