The Lensic and The Santa Fe Opera present The Met Live in HD: The Met Live in HD: Adriana Lecouvreur

The Lensic and The Santa Fe Opera present The Met Live in HD: The Met Live in HD: Adriana Lecouvreur

January 12, 2019   11:00 AM

Adriana Lecouvreur occupies a unique place in the repertory: largely dismissed by experts from its premiere to the present day yet cherished by its fans for the dramatic possibilities provided by the lead roles. The opera is a deft combination of frank emotionalism and flowing lyricism, with pseudo-historical spectacle. Based on a play by Eugène Scribe, the story was inspired by the real-life intrigues of famed actress Adrienne Lecouvreur and the legendary soldier—and lover—Maurice of Saxony. Cilea’s operatic retelling quickly became a favorite of charismatic soloists. The title character in particular is a quintessential diva role.

Soprano Anna Netrebko joins the ranks of Renata Tebaldi, Montserrat Caballé, and Renata Scotto, taking on—for the first time at the Met—the title role of the real-life French actress who dazzled 18th-century audiences with her on-and offstage passion. The soprano is joined by tenor Piotr Beczala as Adriana’s lover, Maurizio. The principal cast also features mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili and baritone Ambrogio Maestri. Gianandrea Noseda conducts. Sir David McVicar’s staging, which sets the action in a working replica of a Baroque theater, premiered at the Royal Opera House in London, where the Guardian praised the “elegant production, sumptuously designed … The spectacle guarantees a good night out.” Approx. runtime: 3:58 [2 Intermissions]

Tickets: $22-$28 | Students: $15

Thanks to The Edgar Foster Daniels Foundation for its support.

January 23, 2019   7:30 PM

Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti, equally at home playing concertos or intimate recitals, is known for risk-taking, thrilling performances, and her disarmingly direct, conversational manner of speaking to audiences. Born in Kiev, Ukraine, pianist Alexei Grynyuk began performing with Ukrainian orchestras and winning international competitions in his early teens. They have found a chamber-music haven in one another, forming a spirited, mesmerizing duo that plays works spanning music history, from the Baroque to new works.

Bach: Chaconne from Partita No. 2 for Solo Violin, BWV 1004
Prokofiev: Sonata No. 2 for Violin and Piano
