Werther: the final scene, with Jonas and Sophie
I missed the Met's cinema relay of Werther yesterday, travelling home from Paris... Thank you to their website for making the final scene available as an "encore" to watch online, starring Jonas Kaufmann, Sophie Koch and a lot of blood. (Update: we hear that this scene is online now because there were technical problems in the cinecast across the US that meant most people didn't actually see it...)
My interview with Sophie from this month's Opera News is here. Keep watching this space for news of t'other one.
