Who is Luisa Miller? A woman in love, a woman in anguish – trapped by a man she does not love and a father who loves her too much. And to play her, a woman finding international stardom: Australian soprano Nicole Car, making another role debut after her successes at Covent Garden and in Europe.
This early piece by Verdi is sumptuous and intimate, the story at once domestic and political, and the characters compelling in their humanity.
Opportunities to see the curiosities of Verdi's catalogue are rare, so we had to share this glamorous new production from Opéra de Lausanne.
Director Giancarlo del Monaco and designer William Orlandi have created a stylish, glossy world for the three acts of this opera, aptly titled Love, Intrigue and Poison.
