For the first time at the Met, soprano Anna Netrebko sings the role of Adriana Lecouvreur, the eighteenth-century actress whose real-life intrigues inspired Cilea’s tragic opera.
Adriana is adored by many but loves only Maurizio - sung by tenor Piotr Beczała - who adores her in return.
Maurizio desperately tries to extricate himself from his previous lover, the Princess de Bouillon - mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili. When the princess discovers that Adriana is her rival, she takes desperate measures of her own.
