Asmik Grigorian and Andrea Carè make their role debuts this month as the title role and her lover, Loris Ipanov respectively in Umberto Giordano’s Fedora.
Based on the play by Sardou, this is one of Giordano’s most notable works. This production, directed by Christof Loy, is a classy interpretation on this powerful story. Asmik returns to Stockholm after rave reviews for her Madama Butterfly. Andrea’s last appearnce at the house was for Carmen and he returns in the new year for Jenůfa.
Fedora runs from 10 December 2016 – 18 January 2017. For more information and tickets, see the Royal Swedish Opera website.
