A finalist in the 2020 International Opera Awards in the Best Newcomer category, American director Louisa Muller is quickly rising to prominence for her versatility and work of "complex finesse" (The Guardian). Louisa's recent production of The Turn of the Screw for Garsington Opera was the recipient of a Royal Philharmonic Society Award and named by The Guardian as one of the Top Ten Classical Music Performances of the Year.
This season Louisa creates new productions of La Traviata for Santa Fe Opera, Platée for Garsington Opera, and Rinaldo for Pinchgut Opera. In 2022/23, Louisa made her Houston Grand Opera debut with a new production of Dame Ethel Smyth's The Wreckers, returned to Lyric Opera of Chicago to lead its production of Ernani, and revived her production of Handel's Amadigi di Gaula for Philharmonia Baroque.
Future engagements include debuts at Theater an der Wien, Canadian Opera Company, and Dallas Opera, as well as returns to Santa Fe Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, and Garsington Opera.
She has directed at the Metropolitan Opera, Los Angeles Opera, Grand Théâtre de Genève, Houston Grand Opera, New York Philharmonic, Edinburgh International Festival, Minnesota Opera, Santa Fe Opera, Wolf Trap Opera, Opera Colorado, Boston Baroque, the Juilliard School, and Opera Queensland.
Louisa is featured in the March 2021 issue of Opera News.
