Description

Andrea Chenier (2 CD) - Maria Callas
Giordano: Andrea Chenier (Milano, 08/01/1955)(2CD)
Label: PRX/Warner Classics/Parlophone

While Puccini’sToscabecame closely identified with Callas, she appeared only rarely in other post-Verdi operas once she had risen to fame.

She learned the role of Maddalena in Andrea Chénierat short notice for a production at La Scala: Verdi’sIl trovatorehad been planned, but the star tenor Mario del Monaco engineered a change to Giordano’s red-blooded drama of the French revolution.

This recording captures the thrill of a first night at Italy’s most famous opera house, and Callas traces her character’s development – from a spoiled young aristocrat to a self-sacrificing woman in love – in gripping and moving detail.

History

Umberto Giordano’s Andrea Chénier

A passionate tale of ill-fated love between an idealistic artist and an aristocratic lady, this quintessential verismo drama is set against the backdrop of the French Revolution and loosely based on the life of the poet André Chénier. The opera premiered in 1896 at Milan’s La Scala.
