The Metropolitan Opera’s 2022-23 season continues with Fedora, Umberto Giordano’s romantically charged murder mystery, which has returned to the Met stage for the first time in 25 years. Soprano Sonya Yoncheva stars in the title role as the Russian princess haunted by the consequences of her own blind passion. Tenor Piotr Beczała is her lover, Count Loris, who is ensnared in a web of romantic and political recriminations. The cast also features soprano Rosa Feola and baritone Lucas Meachem, in a new production by David McVicar. Maestro Marco Armiliato conducts the Met orchestra and chorus in Giordano’s opulent score.
