Alberto Veronesi conducts his first performance as OONY's new Music Director. Cilea's Adriana Lecouvreur features two of the most dynamic artists on the scene today. Acclaimed soprano Angela Gheorghiu stars in the title role of Adriana Lecouvreur along with celebrated tenor Jonas Kaufmann singing the role of Maurizio.

Rounding out this spectacular cast are mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili as the Principessa du Boullion, along with baritone Ambrogio Maestri as Michonnet.

The story of jealous rivalry in love is set between the worlds of the theatre and the aristocracy. This fictional version of the real life story of famous actress Adrienne Lecouvreur is played out to its final and deadly conclusion.

The combination of a dramatic score along with a world-leading cast makes this an event not to be missed!

"Two titanic talents bring star quality to a tale about dangers of fame."

The Independent, review of Adriana Lecouvreur with Gheorghiu & Kaufmann at Covent Garden, November 2010
