Joyce DiDonato and Vittorio Grigolo headline Benoit Jacquot's staging of Massenet's tragic love story, broadcast live from the Royal Opera House in London under the baton of conductor Antonio Pappano. Dutiful daughter Charlotte solemnly promises her mother on her deathbed that she will marry Albert. She carries through with the plan, denying rival suitor Werther a chance to woo her. They agree that separation will ease his pain and Werther agrees to travel but to keep in touch through his letters.
