Synopsis

Acclaimed French filmmaker Benoît Jacquot (Farewell, My Queen) directs Massenet’s tragic opera, an exploration of the conflict between duty and our most passionate desires. Based on Goethe’s novel, the story follows the titular poet (tenor Vittorio Grigòlo), hopelessly in love with the already betrothed Charlotte (celebrated mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato singing the role for the first time). The music is full of lyrical beauty, passion and emotional fervour.
