Teatro dell’Opera di Roma Postpones ‘Luisa Miller’ Due to COVID-19

By Francisco Salazar

The Teatro dell’Opera di Roma has postponed its performances of “Lusia Miller.”

The company, which was set to stream the work on April 20 and 21, announced that due to a number of chorus members testing positive for COVID-19, the “Lusia Miller” performances will be rescheduled.

The news comes as a number of theaters are facing outbreaks across Europe. Recently the Royal Swedish Opera was forced to close due to an outbreak of the virus while the Teatro Real revealed that 20 company members were infected.

Opera di Roma will announce new dates for “Luisa Miller” in the company weeks. Michele Mariotti will conduct the work which is set to star Roberta Mantegna in the title role, Michele Pertusi as Conte di Walter, Antonio Poli as Rodolfo, Daniela Barcellona as Federica, Nahuel Di Pierro as Wurm, and Roberto Frontali as Miller. The cast will be rounded by artists from “Fabbrica” Young Artist Program from the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma.
