Director Jonas Corell Petersen Designer: Nia Damerell Lighting designer: Per Willy Liholm Composer: Gaute Tønder Rarely has a young man’s suffering caused this amount of laughter. Young Werther is a passionate young poet who has everything; wealth, intellect and a bright future. But an emptiness fills him. He falls in love with the sweetnatured Lotte, who is betrothed to another man, a promise she made to her dying mother. Despite this, the young Werther cannot let go of his feelings for her, which sets the scene for this poignant tale of heartbreak and tragedy. Told with humour and live music, this modern interpretation of one of Goethe’s classics is a story of impossible love, binding promises and missed opportunities.
