TIerra de Luz
paints a musical and poetic images of Spain, the Land of Light, as referred by Federico Garcia Lorca in one of his poems.
This project started as a collaboration between singer Linda Miller and flamenco dancer Anastassiia La Musa inspired by spanish music, flamenco and poetry by Federico Garcia Lorca. In one of his poems, Lorca referred to Spain as Tierra de Luz, which inspired the name of our project. Together we will explore music by Granados, Manuel de Falla, and songs collected by Lorca himself, through the lense of spanish classical and flamenco music as well as dance. As we worked on the material, the project expanded to also include rock singer Ravioli Musick who will be accompanying Linda to sing together compositions by Freddy Mercury, such as Barcelona, that he originally sung with spanish soprano Montserrat Caballe.
Our first concert will take place on March 28. We will be joined by Mexican flamenco guitarist and singer Ricardo Sanchez, violin player Jonathan Lewis, who have already collaborated together with Anastassiia as part of 12 Musas Flamenco Ensemble. The piano accompaniment will be provided by …

November 30, 2016 saw Linda Miller onstage in a tour-de-force concert with tenor Boris Derow, pianist Mimi Park and narrator Eugene Stickland in Opera at the Movies live concert.
Linda Faye Miller received international recognition for her appearance in Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award winning film Age of Innocence. Her onscreen performance, as Swedish soprano Christine Nilsson singing the love-duet from Gounod’s Faust, opens the film, igniting the love story between Michelle Pfeiffer’s and Daniel Day-Lewis’ characters. In Calgary and Edmonton, she appeared twice for Alberta Ballet singing Four Last Songs of Strauss in the ballet of the same name by renowned choreographer, the late Rudi van Dantzig, who commended her for her “touching and magnificent singing.” She also sang in Alberta Ballet’s Carmen and Carmina Burana.
Under the baton of Hans Graf, Linda gave numerous performances, including Clärchen’s lieder in the rarely performed incidental music to Beethoven’s Egmont, in the leading role of Alice in Verdi’s Falstaff, Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.
Ms. Miller’s voice defies a narrow classification, enabling her to sing lyric coloratura roles as well as more dramatic spinto roles.
Linda made her stage debut as Constanza in Mozart’s Abduction from the Seraglio with the Toronto Operetta Theatre, an aria from which is on tonight’s programme.
Among numerous radio and television appearances, she recalls an interview on CBC’s Morningside with Peter Gzowski as a “delightful highlight.”
An alumnus of University of Toronto’s Voice Performance department, Ms. Miller brings excellence in musicality, interpretation and language to vocal mastery.
