Adriana Lecouvreur is an opera based on the life of French actress Adrienne Lecouvreur (1692-1730), who dazzled and scandalized 18th-century audiences with her on- and off-stage passions, antics, and liaisons. Adriana opens backstage at Paris’s Comédie-Française as the company prepares for that evening’s performance. What follows is a complicated story of lies, mistaken assumptions and intentions, parties, a rivalry between women, a rivalry between men, political ambitions, bracelets, violets, treachery, and a death scene befitting a diva.
