Description

Internationally acclaimed tenor Jonas Kaufmann triumphs as the lovelorn young poet in Massenet's great Romantic opera. A superb French supporting cast, led by Sophie Koch as his beloved Charlotte, is conducted by the legendary French maestro Michel Plasson, bringing to life this dramatically truthful period production by celebrated film director, Benoît Jacquot, whose intention was to 'make it impossible not to believe what the singers are expressing'.
