Opera North

Andrea Chénier

Umberto Giordano

Sat 19 March

This event has passed.

With a title role among the most prized in the tenor repertoire, Giordano’s stirring opera has always been warmly embraced for its open-hearted emotionalism and ardent dramatic lyricism. Set during the French Revolution, this thrilling drama charts the love rivalry for the beautiful Maddalena between poet Chénier and former servant Gérard.

Annabel Arden's new production for Opera North explores the chaos of revolution and examines the role of the artist in a time of political turmoil.

Sung in Italian with English titles

'Andrea Chénier exerts irresistible visceral power...This is Opera North at its imaginative and resourceful best – a thrilling evening that richly deserved its enthusiastic reception.'  ***** The Telegraph

'opera lovers should storm the barricades to see this comparative rarity revived with such verve...' **** The Times

'Great singing and impeccably judged conducting.' **** The Guardian
