a heart-wrenching tragedy based on Friedrich Schiller’s novel Intrigue and Love.
The young maiden Luisa loves Rodolfo, unaware that he is actually the son of the local lord. An unscrupulous rival for her affections tells her father of Rodolfo’s true identity, turning the old man against him. Jealousy, suspicion, and betrayal tear the lovers apart, but Luisa remains loyal to her father to the last. In the first Met performances of the opera in more than ten years, Sonya Yoncheva sings the title role opposite Piotr Beczata as Rodolfo, with Domingo as Luisa’s stern-yet-loving father.
