Adriana Lecouvreur, DVD, arkivmusic.com

“All of the principal singers are excellent in this 2009 Turin Opera production of composer Francesco Cilea and librettist Arturo Colautti’s much-loved retelling of the love and intrigue that killed French actor Adrienne Lecouvreur in the Paris of 1730.”–John Terauds, thestar.com
