About this Event

VOICEBOX: Opera in Concert goes back to the future for its first foray into the digital world. Reviving this unique double bill as the inaugural production of its virtual season for 2021.

Adriana Lecouvreur, the opera, springs from late Italian verismo. The love triangle, the disparity of social status and the ruthlessness of ambition are strong dramatic elements in the opera. The complexities of the three leading characters, Adriana, Maurizio and Princess de Bouillon, keep Cilea’s masterwork anchored in realism regardless of the fanciful or poetic device of the poisoned violets. Adriana, a renowned actress, her rakish paramour and a married princess careen toward their destiny, confronting the meaning of art, the value of love and the finality of life. The work premiered in Milan in 1902 at Teatro Lirico and starred Enrico Caruso, Giuseppe de Luca, and Angelica Pandolfini in the title role.

An intimate online presentation of Adriana Lecouvreur is available to watch online from May 28th through June 11th.
