Massenet's Werther Live on the web

Arte live will be presenting Jules Massenet's opera, Werther, live on the web tomorrow, Jan. 26, 2010 at 2:30PM EST. 

-What has this got to do with the saxophone? 

Glad you asked. Premiered in 1892, Werther is one of the operas which includes an alto saxophone in the orchestra pit. 

Arte TV is broadcasting a live performance of this great work from the Opéra La Bastille in Paris with a live feed to it's web site. (Aren't you glad you live in the 21st Century). If you miss the live performance, it seems Arte TV will have it available on demand afterward. 

Tomorrow's performance will be conducted by Michel Plasson with Jonas Kaufmann in the lead role, and Sophie Koch as Charlotte.
