A brilliant improvised verse by the patriotic poet Chénier ignites the flame of love in Maddalena, the beautiful daughter of the Contessa di Coigny. However, the tumultuous times of the French Revolution have put the enamoured pair to the test, when the reactionary poet flees from fierce prosecutors and the aristocrats are being hunted one after another. Will their love survive this era of unprecedented riots and raves?

A masterpiece by the Italian composer Umberto Giordano, Andrea Chénier is a passionate love story of conviction and sacrifice written in verismo style, or “realism”, the dominant artistic style of Italian operas of the time. Replete with torrential dramatic music, extreme emotionality and virtuosic arias against the breathtaking French Revolution backdrop, Andrea Chénier is one of the pinnacles of the period’s opera in history. Produced by the prestigious Teatro Regio Torino (Italy), this year’s Macao International Music Festival commemorates the 150th anniversary of the birth of Giordano by presenting to you this epic ode to the beauty of life.
