Lucrèce Borgia

From 14 april 2015 to 19 july 2015
Running time : 2h10 sans entracte
Salle Richelieu

Ferrara is ruled by the sinister and pernicious Lucretia Borgia, a woman of power, her hands stained with blood and her body by incest, who has added fratricide to the Borgia family’s crimes. Gennaro, the fruit of her union with her brother, is unaware of his parents’ identity. During a ball in Venice, Gennaro courts a masked beauty before discovering, to his horror, the face of Lucretia, trembling with love for the son she approaches secretly, under cover of the carnival. Stung by the insults of Gennaro’s friends who unmask her, and suspected of adultery by her husband Don Alfonso, Lucretia sets in motion a harrowing revenge whose implacable intent is inextricably linked to the fate of her son.
