Why See Metropolitan Opera - Adriana Lecouvreur?
Opera Icon Anna Netrebko Stars In The Title Role
Russian diva soprano Anna Netrebko descends from the heavens to lend her angelic vocals to the first of the Met Opera's brand new 2018/19 season's productions. She'll take on the title role of Puccini contemporary Francesco Cilea's enduring Adriana Lecouvreur, a dramatic heroine whose beauty becomes the catalyst for great tragedy. Lead by Italian guest conductor Gianandrea Noseda, the opera is a sensuous, richly melodic musical feast for the senses.
David McVicar's critically acclaimed staging transports the action to a replica of a working Baroque theater, where Adriana Lecouvreur elevates acting to a new art form. Considered one of the greatest actresses of her time, Lecouvreur has the kind of beauty that lead to the fall of Troy. Adored by most who set eyes upon her, Adriana's heart belongs to Maurizio, the Count Of Saxony, who's dalliance with the Princess de Bouillon brings terrible destruction when he tries to leave the princess for his true love Adriana.
