ADRIANA LECOUVREUR
By Francesco Cilea

For the first time at the Met, soprano Anna Netrebko sings the role of Adriana Lecouvreur, the 18th Century actress whose real-life intrigues inspired Cilea’s tragic opera.

Adriana is adored by many but loves only Maurizio, sung by tenor Piotr Beczała, who adores her in return. Maurizio desperately tries to extricate himself from his previous lover, the Princess of Bouillon, mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili. When the princess discovers that Adriana is her rival, she takes desperate measures of her own.

Captured live on stage in New York and screened at Riverside, this new production directed by Sir David McVicar, is partially set in a working replica of a baroque theatre. Gianandrea Noseda conducts the riveting score.
