The Highlands Performing Arts Center will present Live via Satellite the MET Opera’s production of Adriana Lecouvreur on Saturday, January 12 at 12:55pm (with a pre-opera discussion at 12:30pm.) Adriana Lecouvreur by Cilea—New Production. For the first time at the Met, Anna Netrebko sings the title role of Adriana Lecouvreur, the great 18th-century actress in love with the military hero Maurizio, sung by tenor Piotr Beczała. Gianandrea Noseda conducts Cilea’s tragedy, in a new staging by Sir David McVicar, with the action partially set in a working replica of a Baroque theater. The cast also features mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili as the Princess of Bouillon, Adriana’s rival for Maurizio’s affections, and baritone Ambrogio Maestri as Michonnet.
