Ep. 49 Adriana Lecouvreur By Francesco Cilea
Adriana Lecouvreur, by composer Francesco Cilea and librettist Arturo Colautti, is an opera that exquisitely dramatizes the life of the great French actress Adrienne Lecouvreur of the Comédie Française. Adriana Lecouvreur’s story is based on the play by Eugène Scribe, and as well as being the central character of Cilea’s soaring and heart-breaking opera, she has been portrayed on screen by such acting greats as Sarah Bernhardt and Joan Crawford. Join us for the twists and turns of this beloved, dramatic woman’s life. Hosted by Pat Wright and Keely Herron.
