Luisa Miller (Verdi)
May 26 – 11:30 a.m.
Plácido Domingo adds yet another role to his legendary Met career with this rarely performed Verdi gem, a heart-wrenching tragedy of fatherly love. Sonya Yoncheva sings the title role opposite Piotr Beczała in the first Met performances of the opera in more than ten years.
The three-act opera by Giuseppe Verdi, set to an Italian libretto by Salvadore Cammarano, is based on the play Kabale und Liebe (Intrigue and Love) by the German dramatist Friedrich von Schiller. This was Verdi’s 15th opera and is regarded as the beginning of the composer’s “middle period.”
