Opera de Liège Announces Cast Change for ‘Adriana ‘Lecouvreur’

By Francisco Salazar

The Opera de Liège has announced a cast change for its production of Cilea’s “Adriana Lecouvreur.”

The company said that Anna Pirozzi will not be making her debut as “Adriana Lecouvreur,” as the soprano is reserving her role debut for Paris. The soprano also announced that she will be retiring the role of Abigaille in “Nabucco” after performing the opera more than 100 times.

As a result, Elena Moşuc and Carolina López Moreno will take over the title role.

Both sopranos join a cast that includes Luciano Ganci as Maurizio, Anna Maria Chiuri as the Principessa de Bouillon, and Mario Cassi as Michonet.

Arnaud Bernard directs the new production which will be conducted by Christopher Franklin. “Adriana Lecovreur” is set to be performed between April 11 to 22, 2023.
