The young Werther is in love. The object of his overwhelming emotions is called Lotte. In his eyes, she is perfect. He can not live without her! Werther is flooded with stormy emotions - but honestly, he actually still thinks most of himself - even though he projects his misfortune and all his romantic fantasies on her. Werther is a dance theater performance based on Goethe's classic 'The Sorrows of Young Werther' from 1774. A successful book that caused a scandal at the time, with a main character who was excessively self-fixated, embarrassingly outspoken and questioned prevailing social rules.
