Verdi: Luisa Miller
Opernhaus Zurich, March 4,


After Millers great aria in act 1 on man cried "Bravo, Giorgio!"

Stefania Kaluza was great as Federica, a comprimario role, she always have an imposing presence. Laszlo Polgar was in magnificent voice. Wurm was in good hands and voice, Carlos Chausson. Neil Shicoff was a dream for his fans, but unfortunately not for me. Elena Mosuc was a charming Luisa, but I felt that something was missing. 

Wonderful to be able to see Luisa Miller live anyway. Love Verdi! and Opernhaus Zürich!


Better listening, a better Luisa & Rodolfo
from AllegroMusic Opera d'Oro with Katia Ricciarelli and José Carreras.

Or Deutsche Grammophon's Luisa Miller with Katia Ricciarelli and Plácido Domingo.
