With the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the monastery district, the St.Gallen Festival has a venue that, through its history and the exciting interaction with art, invites precisely to set cultural impulses.

About the play
Inspired by the biography of the poet André Chénier, Umberto Giordano's veristic opera fuses poetry and truth to create an opulent and gripping historical musical drama. At the center of the plot, which is driven by the French Revolution and the reign of terror of the Jacobins, is the fictional love triangle between Chénier, the aristocrat Maddalena and the revolutionary Gérard, who abuses his authority to get rid of his rival Chénier. With a musical collage of historical dances, music from the time of the French Revolution and highly emotional lyrical arias, Giordano created a grand historical epic with which Greek director Rodula Gaitanou, who was nominated for the International Opera Award in 2019, makes her Swiss debut. Principal conductor Modestas Pitrenas is on the podium of the St.Gallen Symphony Orchestra.
