  • 03.06.2019 - Sondra Radvanovsky: Luisa Miller in Barcelona

  • Sondra Radvanovsky rounds off the season with Luisa Miller, a Verdi opera about love, deceit and betrayal. Opposite Piotr Beczała, she will be back at the Gran Teatre del Liceu, along with Michael Chioldi, J’Nai Bridges and Marko Mimica, to sing one of Verdi's most clearly Romantic operas, in which the style of his mature works is already perceptible. The performances take place from July 14 until 26.

    Luisa Miller was composed immediately before his "popular trilogy". It is an intense but tranquil opera based on Kabale und Liebe, a bourgeois drama by Friedrich Schiller, whose works were one of Verdi's favourite sources. Damiano Michieletto puts the spotlight on the drama of Rodolfo and Luisa, the two innocent protagonists oppressed by their authoritarian fathers, and shows two children beside them who represent the children they themselves still are. The production, set in pre-Romantic Germany, gives an elegant but forceful rendering of the original text, as adapted by librettist Cammarano, and of Verdi's score.
