Adriana Lecouvreur - Live Broadcast

Francesco Cilea

Estimated Run Time 3hrs 33mins

Soprano Anna Netrebko takes 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. She is joined by tenor Piotr Beczała as Adriana’s lover, Maurizio. The cast also features mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili and baritone Ambrogio Maestri conducted by Gianandrea Nosedas with staging by Sir David McVicar’s, which sets the action in a working replica of a Baroque theater. The Guardian praised the staging as "an elegant production, sumptuously designed."

Based on a play by Eugène Scribe, the story was inspired by the real-life intrigues of famed actress Adrienne Lecouvreur and the legendary soldier—and lover—Maurice of Saxony. Cilea’s operatic retelling quickly became a favorite of charismatic soloists. The title character in particular is a quintessential diva role.

Sung in Italian
