Roberto Alagna rehearsing his first Massenet's Werther on stage in Toulouse, 1997. He sings here the famous & captivating Ossian's poem "Pourquoi me réveiller?..." If only this video were not a rehearsal. It would have been even better... I wonder if non-french-speaking listeners can feel the difference in french accent & spelling from Alagna. It is just perfect : he sings as one would speak with the exact accent, diction & dephth in voice... and believe me it is rarely the case ! And happily, he has such a beautiful voice.
