Verdi | Luisa Miller - Arts Centre Melbourne

  • State Theatre Melbourne Australia (map)

Love.   Intrigue.  Poison.

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 in Europe.

This early piece by Verdi gives us a heroine every bit as fragile as Gilda or Violetta, a lover as jealous and nuanced as Alfredo, and a worried father who ultimately destroys his only love. The music is sumptuous and intimate, the story at once domestic and political, and the characters compelling in their humanity. 

We are sharing 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.
