The Deal

Washington National Opera presents Massenet's tale of forbidden love, "Werther," and tickets are now 50% off at the Kennedy Center Opera House. The score of tragically beautiful music is "full of romantic fervor," according to SF Gate.

Distraught that his beloved is married to another man, he decides the only way he can find peace is through death. Directly from playing the roles in Italy, Francesco Meli and Sonia Ganassi star as Werther and Charlotte.
