Adriana Lecouvreur

Even being the world’s greatest and most admired actress doesn’t guarantee that the handsome young man you love is safe from other women—especially when you have a conniving Princess as a rival. On the other hand, there is something marvelously romantic about being killed by a bouquet of poisoned violets. Montserrat Caballé is the definitive Adriana, the actress of the title, opposite José Carreras as the object of her affection, Maurizio. Fiorenza Cossotto is the delightfully imperious Princess di Bouillon.
