Set your opera alarm for Tuesday 26 January 7.30 (20.35 CET), when there's a *free* webcast of Paris National Opera's 'new' production of Werther (which is actually the Royal Opera's dodgy old one - well done whichever Covent Garden chappie fobbed it off on Johnny Frenchie).
In the title role is Jonas Kaufmann, who has received ecstatic reviews from a swooning French press. The cast also includes the splendid Sophie Koch as Charlotte and the mahogany baritone/mahogany acting skillz of Ludovic Tézier as Albert.
There are three different sites you can watch from: Paris Opera's own, ARTE TV's and Medici.tv. If you're in France, Germany, Austria, Belgium or Switzerland you won't be able to access Medici until 3 Feb, but you will of course be able to watch ARTE's live TV broadcast.
After the live broadcast, the video will be available on demand for 60 days. So you can watch Jonas over and over and over again..............
To whet your appetite, this was apparently recorded at a recent Paris performance:
