A bit about the Opera: Adriana Lecouvreur
Adriana Lecouvreur unites a stellar cast in a new production by David McVicar of an opera not seen at the Royal Opera House since 1906. Anyone who loves Puccini will find this opera by Francesco Cilea, a contemporary and fellow Italian, just as rich, melodious and romantic. Its title role has long been associated with star sopranos, and this production is no exception with Angela Gheorghiu singing opposite Jonas Kaufmann as Maurizio. The story of jealous rivalry in love is set between the two worlds of theatre and the aristocracy with the fictional version of the real and famous actress Adriana Lecouvreur’s life played out to its final and deadly conclusion.
