Washington National Opera Werther
The opera was created by the legendary French composer Jules Massenet and was inspired from the novel The Sorrows of Young Werther. Jules is regarded as one of the most amazing composers of all time. Born in 1842, he turned this form of arts on its head to give one classic after another. He first shot to prominence with Le Roi de Lahore in 1877 which was an attempt to showcase theater. As far as his musical compositions go his first success came in the form of Manon in the year 1884. Jules was hailed as a composer whose music captured the true essence to romance that was in touch with the normal daily French lifestyle. What he composed became one of the major opera trends of the later part of the 19th and the early part of the 20th centuries thus cementing his reputation as one of the greatest of all time. Werther is one of his most successful compositions that he wrote in 1887. It was written to be showcased for the first time at the Opera Comique but unfortunately the theater was destroyed by a huge fire.
Due to that fire the act made its debut after five years on 16th February 1892 at the Imperial Theatre, Vienna. That premiere was done in German rather than French. The performance was met with huge applause from fans and critics alike which played a great part in it being released in French. It made its French debut at Geneva on 27th December, 1892 and then returned home to France to make its debut in the country at the Opera-Comique on 16th January, 1893. Werther then made its way over to the U.S. and made its debut there on 29th March, 1894 at the Metropolitan Opera, Chicago to massive acclaim. The US premiere and success led to the opera being shown for the first time in England at the Covent Garden, London on 11th June, 1894.
