Roberto Alagna brings passion and ardor to the romantic title hero of Massenet’s opera, adapted from Goethe’s landmark epistolary novel. Vesselina Kasarova is Charlotte, the young woman who captures his imagination—and returns his feelings, but is bound to marry another man. Christopher Schaldenbrand as Albert and Lyubov Petrova as Sophie co-star, and Jacques Lacombe conducts.
