Program Notes

Adriana Lecouvreur is an opera in four acts by Francesco Cilèa to an Italian libretto by Arturo Colautti, based on the 1849 play Adrienne Lecouvreur by Eugène Scribe and Ernest Legouvé. It was first performed on 6 November 1902 at the Teatro Lirico in Milan.

In Act I, reparing for a performance, the company bustle around Michonnet, the stage manager. The Prince de Bouillon, admirer and patron of the actress Duclos, is with his companion, the Abbé. Adriana enters reciting. Complimented, she sings Io son l'umile ancella (I am the humble servant of the creative spirit).
