Set against the backdrop of the french revolution Andrea Chénier is loosely based on the turbulent real life events of the poet of the same name. Along with the servant Carlo Gérard. Chénier fall in love with a young aristocrate Maddalena, and will do anything to win over her heart. First performed at the Teartro Alla Scala in 1896, Umberto Giordano's opera is brought to like by Russian soprano Anna Netrebko and her husband Yusif Eyvazov.

Giordano’s masterpiece, Andrea Chénier – which made its début at La Scala in 1896 – has not graced the theatre’s stage since 1985, when Riccardo Chailly starred on the podium, but this year, on December 7th, the Musical Director will once again take the lead, continuing his historic revival of the vast Italian repertoire. On this prestigious occasion, he joins forces for the first time with Mario Martone, an expert director specialized in the creation of historical frescoes for the stage and screen, who – in collaboration with Margherita Palli – directed last year another work by Giordano, La cena delle beffe, inaugurating the rediscovery of Verismo at La Scala. In the lead role, Yusif Eyvazov debuts alongside Anna Netrebko, at her third season opening production, and Luca Salsi.
