GIUSEPPE VERDI

Luisa Miller

Based on the tragedy of Schiller Kabale und Liebe libretto by Salvadore Cammarano, Luisa Miller sketches a romantically intimate and tormented story. The work, staged for the first time on 8 December 1849, carefully recounts the many nuances of the stormy “true story of two unhappy lovers”, Rodolfo and Luisa. Since the overture, Verdi leaves no doubt as to how the protagonist and his beloved are: love, desperate or fervid, prevails over hatred and indignation.

COMPOSER

Giuseppe Verdi

Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901) is the opera composer to whom the Italian identity is most closely linked, because during his long career he has intoned the most intimate feelings and values of a fragmented country that with its music and lyrics has learned to speak Italian.

Among the favorite themes from the maestro of Busseto also the various contradictions inherent in the parent-child relationship, interpreted by masterpieces such as Rigoletto, Il trovatore, La traviata, Simon Boccanegra, Luisa Miller.
