Met Opera in Cinema 2018/2019 – Adriana Lecouvreur (Live)

12 January 2019 @ 6:55 pm


Dates and times:
Live: Saturday, 12 January 2019 at 6:55PM

Venue: Cinema (St James Cavalier)

Adriana Lecouvreur occupies a unique place in the repertory: largely dismissed by experts from its premiere to the present day, yet cherished by its fans for the dramatic possibilities provided by the lead roles. The opera is a deft combination of frank emotionalism and flowing lyricism, with pseudo-historical spectacle. 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.
