The BBC Music Magazine has awarded the Werther DVD by Accentus Music, which features Juan Diego Flórez in the lead role, as “Opera Choice” of the month in its July issue. Reviewer Christopher Cook writes:
Director Tatjana Gürbaca and designer Klaus Grünberg have transformed Massenet’s Masterpiece into a compelling drama that glues you to the edge of your seat from start to finish. [..] Juan Diego Flórez gives the performance of his career as a hero who knows that death is where passion is fulfilled. Anna Stéphany’s Charlotte, by turns terrified, tender and tearful, is with him all the way.
