Francesco Cilea’s Adriana Lecouvreur was inspired by the real-life story of a celebrated actress at the Comédie-Française who was much admired by Voltaire. Hailed as a masterpiece, the opera was triumphantly staged in cities around the world after its premiere in 1902. The dramatically effective narrative is a passionate love triangle filled with intrigue and complicated plot twists set in the gallant 18th century. Its subtle ironies and gorgeous cantabile style of music provide a perfect vehicle for the star cast in this stunning production from the Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino.

History

Adriana Lecouvreur

Composed in the mid-19th-century, Francesco Cilea’s four-act opera, Adriana Lecouvreur is about the real-life French actress, who dazzled 18th-century audiences in Paris with her on and offstage passion.

Set backstage at the Opéra-Comique in Paris around 1730, the plot revolves around Adriana, her lover, the legendary soldier, Maurizio and her rival, Mademoiselle Duclos, all caught in a web of love, jealousy and deception.

Central to the narrative is a bouquet of violets, which represents Adriana’s pledge of love to Maurizio and her death in the end when she holds the poisoned flowers to her face. Maurizio laments her demise in
“Ecco La Luce” as she dies in his arms.

Adriana Lecouvreur premiered at the Teatro Lirico, Milan, 1902.
