Be sure to join Greenbrier Valley Theatre (GVT) for the first Met in HD Live performance of the year this Saturday. Watch as 35 brilliant performers complete Umberto Giordano’s exhilarating drama. Fedora returns to the Met repertory for the first time in 25 years – don’t miss it and wait another 25 years – see it at GVT this weekend!
Packed with memorable melodies, show-stopping arias, and explosive confrontations, Fedora requires a cast of thrilling voices to take flight, and the Met’s new production promises to deliver. Soprano Sonya Yoncheva, one of today’s most riveting artists, sings the title role of the 19th-century Russian princess who falls in love with her fiance’s murderer, Count Loris, sung by star tenor Piotr Beczaa. Soprano Rosa Feola is the Countess Olga, Fedora’s confidante, and baritone Artur Rucinski is the diplomat De Siriex, with much-loved 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 settings – a palace in St. Petersburg, a fashionable Parisian salon, and a picturesque villa in the Swiss Alps.
