In few words:

According to legend, Adrienne Lecouvreur’s untimely demise was caused by a bouquet of poisoned flowers sent by her rival. The woman who revolutionised tragic declamation and was so admired by Voltaire, died at the age of thirty‑eight. Consummate theatrical artistry, passionate love and a mysterious death… that was enough to prompt Eugène Scribe to take up her life story and write a drama later set to music by Francesco Cilea. A triumph! The composer produced an opera of great refinement which would never again leave the operatic stage, in the image of the tragic actress who continued to grace the boards until her dying breath.
