Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Based on Schiller's 'Kabale und Liebe' (Intrigue and Love), Verdi's tragic melodramma 'Luisa Miller' revolves around the loves of the heroine of the title and Rodolfo, son of Count Walter, and the machinations of the Count's steward, Wurm, who wants Luisia for himself, resulting in the death of all three. Directed by Arnaud Bernard, who took as his inspiration Bernardo Bertolucci's 1976 film '1900', this La Fenice production is led by the outstanding Bulgarian soprano Darina Takova whose intense characterization of Luisa emphasizes the heroine's inner torture, and Giuseppe Sabbatini who brings a thrilling theatricality to the role of Rodolfo, especially in the most famous aria from the opera, 'Quando le sere al placido'.
