The Met: Live in HD presents ‘Adriana Lecouvreur’ at The Beacon Theatre

The next performance of The Met: Live in HD, a co-presentation of The Beacon Theatre and the Arts Council, takes place on April 22 at 1 p.m. at the Beacon. International opera star Anna Netrebko plays a quintessential ‘diva role’ as Adriana in Francesco Cilea’s opera Adriana Lecouvreur, about a real-life French actress who dazzled 18th-century audiences with her onstage brilliance and offstage passions. The soprano is joined by tenor Piotr Beczała in sterling form as a legendary soldier and Adriana’s lover, Maurizio. The stupendous mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili and baritone Ambrogio Maestri join an all-star cast. Gianandrea Noseda conducts. Sir David McVicar’s engrossing new staging sets the action in a working replica of a Baroque theater. All tickets are $12, and the Beacon box office opens at 12:30 p.m. on April 22.
