Halfway between the historical detective drama and the melodrama of love and jealously,
the masterpiece by Umberto Giordano, adventurous and passionate, is inspired to the life of the French Poet André Chénier. In a sheet music full of powerful effects and world-famous melodies (from Un dì all’azzurro spazio to La mamma morta and Come un bel dì di maggio), the events follow one another leaving you breathless. The story offers a disenchanted look on the historical moment: the protagonists are disappointed by the atrocities that the Revolution has caused. The ideals Liberté, égalité, fraternité have not been put into practice. Only love is still there, and it will lead our heroes to the tragic decision of dying together.
