Placido Domingo once stars in rarely seen gem by Verdi, that was first performed in 1849, and was his 15th opera, opening up his middle creative period. A tragic story of fatherly love rising about social snobbery and rivalry, this Tyrol-based opera takes us high into the Alps! Placido Domingo sings the iconic role of Miller, Luisa's devoted father.

Luisa is desperately in love with Rodolfo, the son of a nearby nobleman, Walter. However, Walter, being a proud man refuses to have his son marry the poor daughter of a retired soldier and conspires with his retainer Wurm to break the two up and have Rodolfo marry a wealthy, widowed duchess, by throwing Luisa's father into jail for a perceived insult..

While Rodolfo meets with the duchess and confesses his love for Luisa, she is being poisoned by Wurm, who convinces her to marry him in order to save her father's life. Under intolerable pressure she renounces Rodolfo; as we can expect, he is furious. The deceit around the innocent couple culminates in tragedy when Rodolfo enacts a terrible revenge on Luisa, wrongly believing that she no longer loves him.   

In recent seasons Louisa Muller has made directing debuts at the Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Houston Grand Opera, Grand Théâtre de Genève, Opera Queensland, and Atlanta Opera. This year she received considerable critical acclaim for her staging of Das Rheingold with the New York Philharmonic, which the New York Times  called “riveting…a remarkable evening of music theater.” Her summer home since 2015 has been Wolf Trap Opera, where she has directed new productions of Corigliano's The Ghosts of Versailles (Washington Post : “a dazzling thing all around”; Opera News:  “thoroughly inspired staging”), The Rape of Lucretia (Washington Post: “an intense wallop of a well-sung production”; Opera News: “absorbing, provocative staging”), and Tosca (Washington Classical Review: “searing summer verismo.”)

Louisa returns to the Metropolitan Opera for her tenth season on the directing staff, where she has directed revivals of Don Giovanni, Cavalleria Rusticana/Pagliacci, and L'elisir d'amore. At the Met she has assisted directors such as David McVicar, Robert Lepage, Robert Carsen, Bartlett Sher, Michael Grandage, Stephen Wadsworth, Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier, and Giancarlo del Monaco. This season she directs Cavalleria Rusticana/Pagliacci and assists John Copley on Semiramide.

She has also served on the directing staffs of Santa Fe Opera, Glimmerglass Opera, Wolf Trap Opera Company, Opera Theatre of St. Louis, and Opera North (USA).
