MET LIVE IN HD: Cilea’s “Adriana LeCouvreur”
Saturday, January 12 @ 12:55 PM$15 – $25
The New Years Eve new production will also get a run on the big screen with Anna Netrebko and Piotr Beczala in leading roles. The new production is by David McVicar and also stars Anita Rachvelishvili. Soprano Anna Netrebko joins the ranks of Renata Tebaldi, Montserrat Caballé, and Renata Scotto, taking on—for the first time at the Met—the title role of the real-life French actress who dazzled 18th-century audiences with her on- and offstage passion. The soprano is joined by tenor Piotr Beczała as Adriana’s lover, Maurizio. The principal cast also features mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili and baritone Ambrogio Maestri. Gianandrea Noseda conducts. Sir David McVicar’s staging, which sets the action in a working replica of a Baroque theater, premiered at the Royal Opera House in London, where The Guardian praised the “elegant production, sumptuously designed… The spectacle guarantees a good night out.”
