Luisa Miller (Giuseppe Verdi)


Opera in 3 acts
Live at the
Malmö Opera
A production by Monarda Arts in association with Malmö Opera and Arthaus Musik


 

Giuseppe Verdi’s “Luisa Miller” is an opera in three acts based on Schiller’s “Kabale und Liebe” (Intrigue and Love). Just before Christmas 2012, it was recorded at the Malmö Opera, the leading opera house in the expansive region of Öresund in Sweden. “Luisa Miller” is the story of the lovers Luisa and Rodolfo. Their love is challenged by class distinctions between their families. Despite the couple’s struggle, the story eventually ends in inevitable tragedy. The Russian opera singer and rising star Olesya Golovneva is breathtaking as Luisa and the Swedish “Expressen” writes that Luc Robert as Rodolfo “is a gold treasure from Canada. A real tenor!” Conducted by internationally acclaimed Michael Güttler, who works for opera houses and orchestras all over the world, including the Orchestre de Paris and the Wiener Staatsoper, this opera is a ‘must have’.
