The Royal Opera: Andrea Chenier

16 Jun 2024

Description

At a glittering party in 18thcentury Paris, the poet Andréa Chenier delivers an impassioned denunciation of Louis XVI. Five years later, the Revolution has given way to the Terror, transforming the power balance between Chénier, his beloved Maddalena, and Gérard, the man who could destroy him…
