Fresh from his Metropolitan Opera debut, Antony Walker conducts Washington Concert Opera in Massenet’s opera, Werther, Sunday at Lisner Auditorium. The cast includes Met favorites Jennifer Larmore and Giuseppe Filianoti, with Joelle Harvey and Timothy Mix. Based on Goethe’s epistolary novel, The Sorrows of Young Werther, Massenet’s opera tells the story of a young poet fatally obsessed with an unattainable woman. Classical WETA’s Nicole Lacroix and Maestro Walker discuss this ultra-romantic operatic masterpiece by Massenet, with the conductor showing off his amazing ability to sing falsetto and fill in for an entire children's choir while directing the other singers.
