Description
Luisa Miller is sometimes described as the last of Verdi's early operas: just preceding the famous middle period ones that begin with Rigoletto, and balanced between convention and innovation. In the exciting and engaging—albeit a bit melodramatic—action, its heroine is forced to break her relationship with her lover, Rodolfo, to save her father's life.

"Some viewers may find the relatively barren sets and bleaker atmosphere a plus in this still-underrated tragic opera. Darina Takova is clearly the star. From her opening aria, 'Lo vidi e'l primo palpito,' you know you're listening to a great talent.... The rest of the cast is quite fine too, and the conducting of Maurizio Benini and work by the Orchestra & Chorus of the Teatro La Fenice are superb. The sound is excellent and the camera work intelligently managed."—Classical Net

"Both Darina Takova [as Luisa] and Giuseppe Sabbatini [as Rodolfo] sing well and are visually attractive. Arutjun Kothinian is a fine Wurm…. Benini conducts with spirit."—American Record Guide
