Andrea Chénier In Concert
ANDREA CHÉNIER IN CONCERT
ARTS CENTRE MELBOURNE, HAMER HALL
AUGUST 13, 2019
ONE NIGHT ONLY
The life and soul of the world is love!
Andrea Chénier is in danger of losing his head. As France cowers under the Reign of Terror, the poet is falling madly, passionately in love.
A gripping story based on true events unfolds swiftly in Giordano's famous opera, beloved by audiences and performers for its magnificent arias, tender love story and dramatic music.
A poet, a philosopher and defender of the poor, Chénier believes in the ideals of his revolutionary brothers: Liberty! Equality! Fraternity! Now the revolution is over, but La Guillotine hasn't lost her taste for blood. The revolutionaries, once so idealistic, are turning on their own to keep her fed.
Superstar tenor Jonas Kaufmann returns to Australia in one of his most celebrated roles. A concert performance of Andrea Chénier offers the perfect showcase for his 'dark, liquid tone, which soars through the music with refined ease and intensity' (The Guardian). A stellar supporting cast includes Ludovic Tézier, one of the world's greatest baritones, and Eva-Maria Westbroek as Chénier's lover, Maddalena, who sings the heartbreaking 'La mamma morta'.
Released from the orchestra pit, and onto the stage of Hamer Hall, you'll hear the Opera Australia Orchestra in all their glory, led by renowned conductor Pinchas Steinberg.
