Key transition opera between the first and the second Verdian period, Luisa Miller (1849) has been presented in the “Prima delle prime” public talk on May 30, in a lecture entitled “Tragedia romantica con ricatto”.

For its awesome melodical strenght, Luisa Miller forecasts Verdi’s oncoming works, such as the Trilogy and Otello.
