E Opera

Synopsis

For the first time at the Met, Anna Netrebko sings the title role of Adriana Lecouvreur, the great real-life 18th-century actress who is adored by many, but who loves only the military hero Maurizio, sung by Piotr Beczala.

Gianandrea Noseda conducts Cilea’s tragedy, directed by Sir David McVicar, with the action partially set in a working replica of a Baroque theater.

The cast also features Anita Rachvelishvili as the Princess of Bouillon, Adriana’s rival for Maurizio’s affections who will stop at nothing to win his love; Ambrogio Maestri as Michonnet, Adriana’s faithful friend; and Carlo Bosi as the duplicitous Abbé.
