Sedona AZ (April 4, 2018) – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the next Met Live Opera presentation of Giuseppe Verdi’s “Luisa Miller” on Saturday, April 14. There will be two shows that day at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre: 9:30 a.m. (live simulcast) and 4 p.m. (encore).
Plan to come early as John Steinbrunner will lead a pre-opera talk one hour before each production (8:30 a.m. for the morning show and 3 p.m.for the encore).

The cast also features Plácido Domingo as Luisa’s father Miller, with Olesya Petrova as Federica, and Alexander Vinogradov in his Met debut and Dmitry Belosselskiy as Walter and Wurm respectively, the ruthless men determined to tear Luisa and Rodolfo apart.
