Vivaldi meets Werther: Four Seasons



Vivaldi meets Werther: Four Seasons

Werther's tragic love story is told through Antonio Vivaldi's violin concertos The Four Seasons in a multi-disciplinary show for violin, actor and musicians which takes its audience on a journey into the mind of the tortured anti-hero of Goethe’s epistolary novel.

Different art forms reframe and reimagine one another, to form an original vision of two traditional works: united by their sense of drama, characterisation and feeling.
With interactions between actor and violinist, and by combining music and poetry with visual spectacle, this production - hosted by Opera in the City Festival and staged at Bridewell Theatre on 27, 29 and 30 August - develops the drama inherent in Vivaldi’s music into a bold new reading of these two well-loved narratives: where the dramatic movements of Antonio Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons interweave with Goethe’s text to bring its haunting story to life.

In Spring Werther arrives at the countryside, where he ecstatically enjoys nature and a new-found freedom. Soon after he meets Lotte and falls in love, delighting in a Summer of romance and passion. But Autumn brings the arrival of Lotte’s fiancee Albert, and the boy’s mood turns sombre. Alone in the unforgiving cold of Winter, Werther is unable to cope with this unrequited love.

Performed in English.

Starring renowned violinist Alda Dizdari (Wigmore Hall, Cadogan Hall, BBC3 Radio, UK wide and international concert tours), who appears as Werther’s love interest ‘Charlotte' opposite actor Samuel Lawrence (Theatre Royal Bath, Theatre503, Tobacco Factory, National Tours), and directed by Pamela Schermann (Cry Havoc at Park Theatre, award-nominated Mozart & Salieri at Arcola Theatre and UK/Denmark Tour), this production creates a unique theatrical experience through interactions between music and text: actor and violinist communicate with each other and take turns in telling this passionate love story. In unison they paint a picture of Werther’s troubled mind and his journey through the seasons.
