Marcelo Álvarez stars in the title role of the real-life poet André Chénier, an early supporter of the French Revolution who was executed on the guillotine. Patricia Racette is Maddalena, the aristocratic young woman who falls in love with Chénier and tries to save him—only to end up sharing his destiny. Željko Lučić is Gérard, the servant-turned-revolutionary leader, and Gianandrea Noseda conducts the thrilling verismo score.
