Luisa Miller, Glyndebourne, August 2021Posted on 6 August 2021
Based on Schiller’s play Kabale und Liebe (Intrigue and Love) this opera deals with the machinations of a local aristocracy on a father and his daughter. The Count seeks to thwart the marriage of his son to the honest Luisa since he has a better match for him. The Count himself got his position though skulduggery and wants fo fortify it by the bride he has chosen for his son. It all ends in tears, even death. See my review in The Article.
