Rolando stars in Werther at Covent Garden, opening May 5

After a busy spring season that has included a European recital tour, a sold-out concert at Barcelona’s Licieu, and a directorial debut at the Opera de Lyon, Rolando Villazón returns to the opera stage to sing the title role in Massenet’s Werther at London’s Royal Opera House at Covent Garden.  Antonio Pappano conducts this first revival of a 2004 production by Benoit Jacquot, which also stars mezzo-soprano Sophie Koch as the love-stricken Charlotte and soprano Eri Nakamura as Charlotte’s younger sister, Sophie.
