At The Opera, Cilea: Adriana Lecouvreur, February 22, 2014

  

Adriana Lecouvreur is an opera in four acts by Francesco Cilea to an Italian libretto by Arturo Colautti, based on the 1849 play Adrienne Lecouvreur by Eugène Scribe and Ernest Legouvé. It was first performed on November 6, 1902 in Milan. The opera is based on the life of the French actress Adrienne Lecouvreur (1692–1730). While there are some actual historical figures in the opera, the episode it recounts is largely fictional. This classic 1962 recording stars Renata Tebaldi and Mario Del Monaco. Franco Capuana conducts.
