Adriana Lecouvreur, Francesco Cila's fourth and most famous opera, tells of the last love affair and the death of the French actress Adrienne Lecouvreur. She lived from 1692 to 1730 and was one of the best and most prominent actresses of her time. She had a long-term liaison with the no less well-known general Moritz von Sachsen; the rumor that the Duchess of Bouillon, who was also in love with Moritz, was killing her, occupied all of Paris.

The tenor aria "Salut, demeure chaste et pure" ("Greetings to me, chaste and pure dwelling") is exemplary of Charles Gounod's handling of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's tragedy: on the one hand the text is almost literally based on the original, on the other hand it adds So much languishing feeling is added to the music that for some guardians of the grail of German culture of sensual refinement it became too much: while Faust sings about the "innocent and divine soul" of the absent Marguerite, the solo violin hugs his melody like a duet partner. And "the melody is delightful," even the Gounod skeptic Hector Berlioz said in his premiere review: "There was applause, but not enough, the aria deserved a hundredfold applause."

A dancer writes a longing in the room. It is a solo of flowing serenity, unfolding over those gentle waves of sound with which the famous "On the beautiful blue Danube" begins before it begins to turn into a waltz, repeatedly drawing strength into those nerve-tickling delays that are so are typical of music that, like no other, represents everything that one associates with »Vienna«. ..

Otto Schenk dips his love potion production into a warm, southern light: Here the story of Adina and Nemorino is told, which has always been one of Donizetti's greatest successes. With a loving eye, the composer designed an ironic village idyll with precisely drawn types, whose happiness and pain he always takes touchingly seriously.
