From the early death of actress Adrienne Lecouvreur, legend has it that a bouquet of poisoned flowers sent by her rival apparently caused her death. At the age of thirty-eight, we lost the one who had revolutionized the declamation of tragedy, earning her the admiration of Voltaire. Consummate art of the stage, a passionate love, and a mysterious death ... It did not take long for Eugène Scribe to become fascinated with her life and to write a drama that was later set to music by Francesco Cilea. It was to be a triumph! The composer created an extremely refined opera that would not leave the operatic stage, like a tragic figure who would give fantastic performances until her last breath.
