Despite the star-making potential of her part, many actresses would have shied away from the daunting task of stepping into Julia Roberts' shoes. However, Barks' determination to make the role her own shines through at every moment.

Placido Domingo sings the famous tenor role in Verdi's Luisa Miller

Why See Metropolitan Opera - Luisa Miller?

Placido Domingo returns to the Met!

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.
