ROH: ANDREA CHÉNIER

ROH: ANDREA CHÉNIER (12A)

At a glittering party in 18th-century Paris, the poet Andrea Chénier 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. Filmed live.
