Luisa Miller
Guiseppe Verdi “Luisa Miller”

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.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socialising, good books and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and , there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world.But I never lost my love of Crete for a minute. And four years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
