The original DVD received a host of outstanding international reviews:
"Werther is portrayed by the tenor of the moment, Jonas Kaufmann. He brings to the part a sublime timbre, exceptional musicality, a very wide palette of tonal shadings and immaculate diction.” - Le Monde

This is Kaufmann's show. These days, it seems, he can do no wrong… the camera loves him, whether it catches him in silent meditation, in gentle reverie or in full cry, like a raging tiger.” - Opera News (New York)

Jonas Kaufmann an absolute dream of a Werther.” - The Daily Telegraph
