Joshua Bell showcased the elegance of the violin in a superb performance with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields at Boston’s Symphony Hall on Sunday. Performing four wildly different pieces, the world-renowned musician and the chamber orchestra that he directs unleashed both their technical brilliance and emotional exuberance.
Tender and passionate, romantic and epic, beautiful and destructive, Boston Lyric Opera’s new production of “Werther” gave a powerful interpretation of the archetypal legend of unrequited love. An iteration of French musician Jules Massenet’s 1887 adaptation of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s classic, the performance was BLO’s first rendition of the piece in almost 20 years. What they brought to the stage was more than worth the wait.
