The production will be streamed on the company’s streaming platform and will star Brian Jagde as Maurizio, Nicola Alaimo as Michonnet, Ermonela Jaho in the title role of Adriana Lecouvreur, and Elīna Garanča as La Principessa di Bouillon.

The cast will be rounded out by Evgeny Solodovnikov, Andrea Giovannini, Ilja Kazakov, Angelo Pollak, Ileana Tonca, and Patricia Nolz. Asher Fisch conducts the revival of David McVicar’s production.

The production will showcase Jaho and Garanča in their role debuts and Jagde will reprise his acclaimed Maurizio, which he performed at the Royal Opera House alongside Angela Gheorghiu.
