Adriana Lecouvreur, although a melodramatic fictional tale, is based on a real-life actress of the ComÉdie-FranÇaise, and is the only one of Cilea's operas to have held a place in the repertory, albeit on the fringes. The opera is tuneful and melodic with some arias that are also occasionally heard in recital but its main challenge is for a dramatic soprano and this is amply demonstrated here by Renata Scotto.
