Join Capitol City Opera Company on September 17 at 7:00 pm at Petite Violette for a night of delicious food and performances from Francesco Cilea’s Adriana Lecouvreur.
“Actress Adrienne Lecouvreur may be admired and loved by many, but she only has eyes for one: Maurizio, the Count of Saxony, to whom she gifts a bouquet of violets to show her love before going on stage. Maurizio, however, is also having an affair with the Princess de Bouillon, which he tries to break off in order to be with Adrienne. The two women soon become mutually suspicious, realising the other to be in love with Maurizio as well. Feelings of jealousy and anger build up until a ferocious confrontation breaks out between them. Believing Maurizio to be lost to her, a distraught Adrienne refuses to go back on stage and declines to celebrate her name day with her theatre troupe. In her solitude, is Adrienne now most vulnerable to an attack fuelled by the Princess’ malice? Or might Maurizio show up to save the day?”
