A ROH Insights event exploring Massenet's haunting opera, Werther, will be live-streamed for free via the Royal Opera House YouTube channel and this page at 7.15pm BST on 7 June 2016.
Presented by Clemency Burton-Hill, the evening will feature Music Director Antonio Pappano discussing the virtuoso singing, sumptuous score and romantic drama of this Goethe-inspired work, which stars Joyce DiDonato and Vittorio Grigòlo in the lead roles.
This 2004 production is to be revived at the Royal Opera House on 19 June and this event will provide a glimpse into what audiences can expect from Massenet's enduring opera, telling the tale of two passionate people each intent on hurting the other.
