Cilea’s Adriana Lecouvreur Opera (The Met: Live in HD 2019)
13 July, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
Enjoy a live-in-HD screening of Cilea’s Adriana Lecouvreur opera performance from the Met.
Soprano Anna Netrebko joins the ranks of Renata Tebaldi, Montserrat Caballé, and Renata Scotto, taking on — for the first time at the Met — the title role of the real-life French actress who dazzled 18th-century audiences with her on-and offstage passion. The soprano is joined by tenor Piotr Beczała as Adriana’s lover, Maurizio. The principal cast also features mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili and baritone Ambrogio Maestri. Gianandrea Noseda conducts.
Sir David McVicar’s staging, which sets the action in a working replica of a Baroque theatre, premiered at the Royal Opera House in London, where the Guardian praised the “elegant production” and “sumptuously design”, adding that it was “a spectacle that guarantees a good night out.”
