At a glittering party in 18th-century 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...
Jonas Kaufmann headlines David McVicar’s spectacular staging, under the baton of long-time collaborator Antonio Pappano – who conducts Giordano’s epic historical drama of revolution and forbidden love in his last production as Music Director of The Royal Opera.
Please note: sadly, Carlos Álvarez has withdrawn from all performances of Andrea Chénier. To accommodate the revised stage schedule, the cinema capture will now be filmed on 05 June 2024, and the role of Carlo Gérard will be performed by Amartuvshin Enkhbat on this date.
Andrea Chénier will still be broadcast via satellite at 7.15pm on 11th June 2024 as previously advised.
