Why See Luisa Miller?
A Brand New Production Of The Verdi Classic
Helmed by International Opera Award-winning director Barbora Harakova Joly, the ENO presents a brand new production of Giuseppe Verdi's Luisa Miller makes its way to the London Palladium's hallowed stage. Marking a huge change in direction for the composer, the opera was written in 1849 and was one of the first operas of its time to explore the lives of ordinary people - but that doesn't make its music any less dramatic and passionate - in fact, it reflects some of Verdi's most emotionally pitch perfect music and soul-stirring melodies.
Conducted by British maestro Alexander Joel and starring ENO Harewood Artist Elizabeth Llewellyn in the titular role, Luisa Miller is set in the Alps in the 17th century. Luisa is the daughter of Miller, a retired soldier, and the lover of Carlo. Carlo is not Miller's first choice for a suitor, but upholds that his daughter may marry any man he chooses, much to the chagrin of the nobleman Wurm, who desires Luisa for his own. Making his move, Wurm reveals Carlo's true identity as the son of Count Walter, throwing all into chaos and tragedy.
Opening night: 12 February 2020
