Umberto Giordano's dramatic opera Fedora will begin performances December 31, marking its first production at The Metropolitan Opera in 25 years. Starring soprano Sonya Yoncheva, the opera in three acts will run through January 28. The production will also star tenor Piotr Beczala as Count Loris, with direction by David McVicar, and Marco Armiliato serving as conductor. 

With a fixed set designed by Charles Edwards that, throughout the story, unfolds like a Russian nesting egg, Fedora transports audiences from a palace in St. Petersburg across Europe to a Parisian salon and through the Swiss Alps, as the Russian princess Fedora falls in love with her fiancé’s murderer, Count Loris. Bridgette Reiffenstuel lends costume design to the opulent setting, highlighted by Adam Silverman's lighting.

The rest of the cast includes Lucas Meachem as De Siriex and Rosa Feola as Olga. Sung in Italian, subtitles will be provided in English, German, Spanish, and Italian.
