At The Opera, Giordano: Andrea Chenier, November 14, 2015

  

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. The work was first performed at the Teatro alla Scala, Milan, on  March 28, 1896.
