[Only available to stream in select countries. See FAQs for more details.] Star tenor Luciano Pavarotti brings passion and vocal splendor to the role of Andrea Chénier, the poet caught between the maelstrom of the French Revolution and his love for Maddalena (sung by Aprile Millo), daughter of an aristocratic family. When Maddalena’s servant Gérard (Juan Pons), who is in love with her, becomes a powerful official of the revolutionary forces, the personal and political stakes are raised—with tragic consequences. James Levine leads the Met Orchestra in this colorful verismo score.
