FILM-OPERA BROADCAST BY RAI CULTURA
FIRST VISION ON RAI5
The opera, taken from the play by Scribe and Legouvé and staged for the first time in Milan on November 6, 1902, tells the latest poignant events that see the actress Adriana Lecouvreur as the protagonist. In this work, comedy and drama are balanced in a natural balance, in which intrigue, rivalry, love and jealousy gradually saturate the line of comedy with drama.
New production of the TCBO
[…]The four acts of the opera become four cross-sections of different eras, of muses who inspired their time, and perhaps who all walked on the boards of the same infinite stage.
It is she, the real Adriana Lecouvreur, who tells us the first chapter of the story, in a crowded backstage from the first half of the 18th century where the theatrical machine plays with artifices and candles.
In the second act we jump to the 1800s and the story is colored with more romantic tones, she is ideally a Sarah Bernhardt one of the actresses who most played the role of Adriana in the tragedy of Legouvé and Scribe;
In the third act we arrive at the 1920s where cinema forcefully enters the society of the time and feelings are filtered by a camera; there are many inspiring muses of that period from Yvonne Printemps, protagonist of one of the first silent films inspired by Lecouvreur, to get to Greta Garbo or Loie Fuller capable of creations painted with dance in the space of the theatrical scene

The composer Francesco Cilea (1866-1950), although historically belonging to the realist school, is distinguished by a more collected lyricism and elegiac nuances that bring him closer to the French school.
He fully revealed his personality with his two most famous works, the Arlesiana and Adriana Lecouvreur, a masterpiece that gave him international fame.
