At the Opera. Giordano: Andrea Chenier

  

Andrea Chénier is a verismo opera in four acts by the composer Umberto Giordano, set

to an Italian libretto by Luigi Illica. It is based loosely on the life of the

French poet, André Chénier (1762-1794), who was executed during the French

Revolution. The character Carlo Gérard is partly based on Jean-Lambert Tallien,

a leader of the Revolution. This 1977 recording stars Placido Domingo, Renata

Scotto and Sherrill Milnes. James Levine conducts.
