COMING UP NEXT ON STREAMING

LUISA MILLER
STREAMING JULY 31 AT 10AM TO AUGUST 1 AT 11:59PM PACIFIC


Intrigue and Love Take Centerstage in Verdi’s Star-Crossed Romance ‘Luisa Miller’

She didn’t know his name. She didn’t know his background. But what Luisa Miller did know was that her heart belonged to the stranger Carlo as soon as she clapped eyes on him.

But the secret behind Carlo’s identity is the least of her problems in Giuseppe Verdi’s star-crossed romance Luisa Miller, a tale of class, deception and betrayal set in the Alps.

Soprano Leah Crocetto stars as the opera’s title heroine, a woebegone villager trapped between her true love and the murderous schemes of a jealous courtier. In the role of Luisa, Crocetto unleashes “torrents of powerful and beautifully tuned sound,” in a performance the San Francisco Chronicle hails for its “vocal grandeur.”

As her beloved Carlo, tenor Michael Fabiano had critics raving: “There was simply nothing Fabiano couldn’t achieve — from limpid, sweetly lyrical phrases to full-throated and intricate passagework, all of it delivered with honeyed but muscular tone.”

Italian conductor Nicola Luisotti leads the San Francisco Opera Orchestra in this classic Francesca Zambello production, streaming all this weekend, starting Saturday at 10 a.m. Pacific. Directed for the screen by Frank Zamacona.

It is love at first sight when the knight Walther von Stolzing first meets the goldsmith’s daughter, Eva. But tradition trumps love in 19th-century Nuremberg. Her father has decreed there’s only one way to win Eva’s hand in marriage, and that’s to join Nuremberg’s guild of competitive singers—and beat them all in song.
