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 Malmo Opera, the leading opera house in the expansive region of Oresund 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 Guttler, 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'.
