The Metropolitan Opera has announced a cast change for its final performance of “Fedora” on Jan. 28, 2023.

The company said that Sonya Yoncheva will not sing the performance and as a result, Chiara Isotton will take over the title role and make her Met debut.

Isotton last sang the title role at the Teatro alla Scal in October also filling in for Yoncheva. She has performed at the Teatro alla  Scala in productions of “Macbeth” and “Le Amore dei Tre Rei.” She has also performed in Venice and Piacenza.

She joins a cast that includes Piotr Beczala, Rosa Feola, and Sergio Vitale. Marco Armiliato conducts the production by David McVicar.

Yoncheva returns to the stage in February for performances of “Norma” at the Metropolitan Opera.
