A modest, genial man who once threatened his librettist with a toy pistol (they both burst out laughing), Giordano is now chiefly known for the marvelous opera Andrea Chenier (about the French poet who was both a champion and a victim of the French Revolution) and the opera Fedora (about a Russian princess in love with a nihilist).
