  Luisa Miller at Lyric Opera

Luisa Miller

Lyric Opera
20 N. Wacker Drive Chicago

Verdi's sumptuously beautiful romantic drama tells the story of sweet, vulnerable Luisa, who loves Rodolfo, the son of a ruthless, unethical nobleman whom Luisa's own father loathes. The young couple's relationship leads to catastrophe in a drama that breathes passion and excitement. Memorable arias (including "Quando le sere al placido," one of the composer's greatest tenor hits), breathtaking duets, and thrilling ensembles abound in this tale of star-crossed love and violent jealousy. Lyric's first presentation of this electrifying work in more than three decades at Chicago's Lyric Opera House will be a feast for all devotees of Verdi and Italian opera.

"...It was a night of transition at the Lyric Opera of Chicago. The Spanish-born Italian conductor Enrique Mazzola, who has just become the Lyric's music director-designate - he with the candy-red glasses and a string of achievements in New York, Berlin and Paris - led a high-energy performance of Verdi's "Luisa Miller" to a welcoming audience."

"...As with most Lyric performances, you too may be hard put to find a favorite performer because these are stellar talents-all! This writer though feels compelled to give a special shout out to tenor Joseph Calleja, the romantic lead, who seemed to lose his voice for a few notes, likely a casualty of the sudden wintry chill that had overtaken Chicago this weekend. Calleja's voice is not only soothingly tenor sweet, but then noting how he simply modulated his volume a tad after that vocal dustup was truly stirring. It was hard not to love him."
