Verdi’s ‘Luisa Miller’ at The Met Through Guild Hall
The Met: Live in HD will present a simulcast of Giuseppe Verdi’s “Luisa Miller” on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. at Guild Hall. Elijah Moshinsky’s production, the Met’s first of the opera in more than 10 years, stars Placido Domingo as Miller, the father of the title character, whose role is sung by Sonya Yoncheva. Piotr Beczala plays Rodolfo, Luisa’s suitor.
Originally set in the Tyrolean Alps during the 17th century, the story centers on the bond between a father and his daughter as they stand against a hostile world. The current production, for which Santo Loquasto designed the sets and costumes, updates the story to rural England in the mid-19th century.
Tickets are $22, $20 for members, and $15 for students.
