The Lensic and Santa Fe Opera present The Met Live in HD: Luisa Miller

April 14, 2018   10:30 AM - 2:30 PM

James Levine and Plácido Domingo add yet another chapter to their legendary Met collaboration with this rarely performed Verdi gem, a heart-wrenching tragedy about a young woman who sacrifices her own happiness in an attempt to save her father’s life. Sonya Yoncheva sings the title role as the peasant girl Luisa, opposite Piotr Beczala as Rodolfo. Plácido Domingo plays Miller, Luisa’s father; Olesya Petrova is Federica; and Alexander Vinogradov (in his Met debut) and Dmitry Belosselskiy are Walter and Wurm, respectively—the ruthless men determined to tear Luisa and Rodolfo apart. Luisa Miller was last performed at The Met in 2006. Sung in Italian.
Estimated Run Time: 3 hours, 38 minutes

Performance Santa Fe - Daniil Trifonov

Performance Santa Fe - Daniil Trifonov

May 1, 2018   7:30 PM

Moments before Daniil Trifonov performs, profound silence invariably takes possession of his audience. Its intensity depends not on concert hall convention; rather, it arises naturally from the Russian pianist’s power to transcend the mundane and communicate music’s timeless capacity to bind communities together. Out of that silence comes a rare kind of music-making.
