What you thought of: Luisa Miller

Read a selection of press reviews and audience reactions for Luisa Miller.

The curtain has now gone up on our production of Luisa Miller.

From village dances to courtly conspiracies, Verdi paints a broad musical canvas, climaxing in some of the most striking ensembles and finales the composer would ever create.

Christof Loy directs Glyndebourne’s first ever production of Verdi’s tragedy, and Enrique Mazzola conducts.

Read what the audience and critics had to say about the production.

Audience Reaction

What the critics are saying

‘eloquently staged, exquisitely conducted and beautifully sung’
★★★★★

The Telegraph

‘Mané Galoyan’s intensely involving Luisa, Charles Castronovo’s unstable Rodolfo, Vladislav Sulimsky’s caring, paternal Miller, Krzysztof Baczyk’s sinister Wurm, Evgeny Stavinsky’s stiff, compromised Count Walter and aristocratic rival Nadezhda Karyazina’s Federica all deliver Verdi’s notes with impact in fully realised performances.’
★★★★★

The Stage

‘Bold casting includes a sensational main-season debut from soprano Mané Galoyan’
★★★★★

The Arts Desk

‘The excellent Glyndebourne chorus was off stage throughout, beautifully blended and offering a periodic injection of a more cheerful musical mode.’

The Guardian

‘Glyndebourne’s new Verdi staging is strong and stirring’

The Times

‘The score, in an orchestral reduction by Tony Burke, is conducted with the subtlety and sensitivity it deserves by Enrique Mazzola.’

Evening Standard

‘For compelling drama and passionate musical performances, this Luisa Miller is remarkably powerful.’
