Andrea Chenier, Royal Opera, May 2024

Antonio Pappano bows out at the Royal Opera with a superb Andrea Chénier. This verismo opera by Giordano is one of the great operas of that genre, with a superb libretto by Luigi Illica who wrote for Puccini and other Italian opera composers of that time. It brings the French Revolution and its bloody aftermath very much to life — see my review in The Article.
