At The Opera, Giordano: Andrea Chenier (CETRA 1953) July 14, 2018

  

Andrea Chénier is a verismo opera in four acts by Umberto Giordano, set to an Italian libretto by Luigi Illica, and first performed on March 28, 1896 at La Scala, Milan. The story 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 leading figure in the Revolution. It remains popular with audiences, though less frequently performed than in the first half of the 20th century.

Cast:

Andrea Chenier - Jose Soler

Carlo Gerard - Ugo Saravese

Maddalena - Renata Tebaldi

RAI Studio

Arturo Basile - conductor
