Workshop for 12 to 18 year olds
The epistolary novel Die Leiden des jungen Werther made Goethe, who was 23 when it was published, famous over night and triggered a veritable Werther fever. Today’s young generation hardly writes letters, but even today, young people share their emotional state with the public on social media. The fate of a love-sick young man is as topical today as ever. Using this Sturm und Drang plot, we will film expressive scenes and set them to Massenet’s stirring, emotionally atmospheric music.
Workshop 23 to 27 Apr, 10am-5pm
