How love triumphs in the shadow of a terrifying regime, shows Umberto Giordano’s "Andrea Chénier", a verismo opera loosely based on the life of the French poet Chénier, who was executed during the French Revolution.

In the staging by Hollywood film director and acclaimed opera director Philipp Stölzl at the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich, star soprano Anja Harteros sings the young aristocrat Maddalena di Coigny, “a role that seems to be tailored to her” (FAZ).

Fierce and passionate, her Maddalena is “a marvel” (Süddeutsche Zeitung), who turns the heads of both Andrea Chénier and the former servant, now powerful official Carlo Gérard (George Petean). Star tenor Jonas Kaufmann shines as revolutionary poet “with a dark, alluring, longing timbre” (Süddeutsche Zeitung) in Stölzl’s staging, that provides a powerful imagery with its tableaux vivants and historical costumes.

With the joint forces of the Bayerisches Staatsorchester and the Chorus of the Bayerische Staatsoper, conductor Marco Armiliato brings all the drama of revolutionary France to life. “A sensational Anja Harteros brings the house down! Kaufmann is perfect for the role – full of vitality and radiance! World-class!” (BR Klassik)
