Opera in four Acts of Umberto Giordano
In adapting the story of the revolutionary poet André Chénier, Umberto Giordano took Chénier's latest inspirational muse and recorded a novel - not proven in real history - that provided the libretto with a perfect closure: the life of the poet of the revolution French and his lover's culmination in the guillotine of Robespierre in 1794. Class struggle, revenge, patriotism, megalomania and romance, are the salient points of this masterpiece that comes from the hand of the filmmaker Lucrecia Martel in his debut in the Colon.
