It is the tragedy of a young woman who sacrifices her happiness to save her father’s life.
Plácido Domingo in the role of Miller, Louisa’s father, with Olesya Petrova as Fedrica and Alexander Vinogradov in his MET debut and Dmitry Belosselskiy, respectively Walter and Bourm, the merciless people forced to divorce Louisa and Rodolfo.
The story centers on the bond between a father and his daughter as they stand together against a hostile world, and much of the dramatic and psychological acumen that would define the mature Verdi is already fully apparent in this earlier work. It is an opera very much like its title character—one that impresses with genuine virtues rather than superficial flashiness.
