Luisa Miller

GREAT PERFORMANCES AT THE MET: Luisa Miller

 

Elijah Moshinsky’s production is set in 19th century England. Luisa believes she is in love with Carlo, but little does she know, Carlo is actually Rodolfo, the son of Count Walter. Her father Miller is dubious of Carlo’s true intentions, and his fears are confirmed by Wurm, Walter’s steward who is also in love with Luisa, and reveals Carlo’s true identity. Walter hopes to have his son marry the duchess Federica, but Rodolfo is in love with Luisa. Miller informs his daughter of Rodolfo’s deception, but the young man pleads his sincerity, much to Walter’s dismay. Luisa and her father are sentenced to prison following a confrontation with Walter, but Rodolfo is able to secure Luisa’s freedom by threatening to reveal his father’s tainted rise to power. When Miller is jailed, Wurm assures Luisa that her father can be freed if she writes a letter declaring her love for Wurm. After receiving Luisa’s letter from Wurm, a hurt Rodolfo vows to marry Federica as revenge. Rodolfo later confronts Luisa about the letter and asks her to pour him a drink, which he secretly spiked with poison. After the two drink from the poisonous cup, Luisa tells Rodolfo the truth about the letter, leading Rodolfo to kill Wurm in the moments before their demise. Bertrand de Billy conducts. Anthony Roth Costanzo hosts.
