What You'll Get
Much like human history, opera is epic in scale, full of murders and romantic intrigue, and frequently interrupted by dramatic men in half-masks and capes. Get in on the grandeur with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a Section C-level, rear-terrace seat to the Washington Concert Opera's production of Werther, performed Sunday, May 22 at 6 p.m. in Lisner Auditorium.
One of the few American companies devoted to presenting operas in concert form, Washington Concert Opera sets patrons' spirits to soaring with rousing renditions of major works. Their forthcoming presentation of Jules Massenet's Werther seeks to showcase a stirring score and the talents of seven songbirds—including Met Opera regulars Jennifer Lamore (Charlotte) and Giuseppe Filianoti (Werther)—through a tale of star-crossed lovers, deathbed promises, and spontaneous, tuneful small talk. The vocal vamping takes place in the Lisner Auditorium, located on the George Washington University campus, whose tiered seating and cavernous playing chamber allow for ample views of vocalists and violinists alike. Attendees seated in Section C gaze upon the orchestra's harmonics from the rear terrace, enjoying unparalleled views of Waldo hiding behind the timpani section.
