Patricia Racette as Maddalena and Željko Lučić as Gérard in Giordano's "Andrea Cheniér."

Today at 1 pm, the Metropolitan Opera broadcasts Umberto Giordano's verismo love story, Andrea Chénier.

After their well-received pairing in Il Trovatore, Marcelo Álvarez and Patricia Racette reunite in Giordano’s melodramatic story of life in times of revolutionary fervor, a passionate tale of the ill-fated love of a dashing poet and an aristocratic lady, set against the backdrop of the French Revolution.

The Met revives its 1996 production, a stylized realist treatment by Nicolas Joël, now the outgoing director of the Paris Opera.
