Luisa Miller, set to a libretto by Salvadore Cammarano after the play "Kabale und Liebe" by Friedrich von Schiller, premiered in Naples at the Teatro San Carlo on December 8, 1849.
"For that perceptive early critic of Verdi, Abramo Basevi, Luisa Miller marks the beginning of Verdi’s ‘second manner’, one in which he drew more on Donizetti’s example and less on Rossini’s, and in which his musical dramaturgy took on a more subtle and varied form." Roger Parker in Grove Music Online. Item #31725
