The Met: Live in HD – FEDORA Opening at the Cinema Art Theater in Lewes
Umberto Giordano’s exhilarating drama returns to the Met repertory for the first time in 25 years. Packed with memorable melody, 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 confidant, and baritone Artur Rucinski is the diplomat De Siriex, with 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. The Met: Live in HD series is sponsored by Delmarva Public Media.[Est. Runtime: 2 hrs 25 min, sung in Italian with English subtitles]
