The San Francisco Opera is now announcing for next season Alice Coote in the role of Charlotte in Massenet's Werther instead of the previously announced Elina Garanča. Here is an article.
Ramon Vargas is the Werther. Alice and Ramon together will be the hot version of the opera as opposed to the cool version I saw in Paris. The contrast should be complete. I doubt that I will love it so much, but you never can tell.
