Adriana Lecouvreur unites a stellar cast under the baton of Mark Elder, 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, one of his contemporiaries, and a 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 with Angela Gheorghiu singing the title role opposite Jonas Kaufmann as Maurizio. The story of jealous rivalry in love is set between two worlds of the theatre and the aristocracy, and this production brings the 18th-century atmosphere to life in rich historical detail. Against this backdrop, this fictional version of the life of the real and famous French actress Adrienne Lecouvreur is played out to its final and deadly conclusion. With the combination of a wonderful score, world-leading cast and exciting production team, this is an unmissable event indeed.
