MET 2022/23: Fedora (LIVE)



Umberto Giordano’s exhilarating drama returns to the Met repertory for the first time in 25 years. Packed with memorable melodies, showstopping arias, and explosive confrontations, Fedora requires a cast of thrilling voices to take flight, and the Mets new production promises to deliver. Soprano Sonya Yoncheva, one of todays most riveting artists, sings the title role of the 19thcentury Russian princess who falls in love with her fianc s murderer, Count Loris, sung by star tenor Piotr Beczała. Soprano Rosa Feola is the Countess Olga, Fedoras confidante, and baritone Artur Ruci ski is the diplomat De Siriex, with muchloved Met maestro Marco Armiliato conducting. Director David McVicar delivers a detailed and dramatic staging based around an ingenious fixed set that, like a Russian nesting doll, unfolds to reveal the opera’s three distinctive settingsa palace in St. Petersburg, a fashionable Parisian salon, and a picturesque villa in the Swiss Alps.
