The opera is based on the life of early-18th-century Comédie-Française actress Adrienne Lecouvreur. Act I, backstage at the theatre: in love with Maurizio, Adriana offers him a bouquet of violets to put in his buttonhole. Act IV, in Adriana’s room: the faded violets are returned to Adriana with a note; she kisses them and throws them into the fire; Maurizio enters and reveals that he had not sent the violets; Adriana dies as the violets had been poisoned by her rival, the Princess.
Francesco Cilea’s opera, a typical example of verismo, was premiered in 1902 at the Teatro Lirico in Milan, with Enrico Caruso in the role of Maurizio. In the New York Metropolitan Opera production, celebrated soprano Anna Netrebko appears in the role of Adriana.
