With his spectacular production of Umberto Giordano's Andrea Chenier, director Keith Warner unites intellectual depth and exciting entertainment for the eyes and ears using every possible resource offered by Bregenz's floating stage. The colossal set by David Fielding is inspired by Jacques-Louis David's famous painting Death of Marat. The opera is both a moving love story and a historical thriller with a highly emotional score. Ulf Schirmer, the Wiener Symphoniker and the excellent soloists Hector Sandoval, Norma Fantini and Scott Henricks unleash the entire power of this Italian verismo work.
