This review is from: Luisa Miller: Metropolitan Opera (Levine) [DVD]  (DVD)
Luisa Miller is the opera in which Verdi comes of age. The music in the first act is enjoyable, the second act excellent and the third act suberb. Also a fine story based on a play by Schiller.
Excellent production and superb perfomances by all the principals - Placido Domingo and Renata Scotto being especially good.
Main negatives are the frequent and lengthy (but fully justified) applause by the Metropolitan Opera audiance which interrupts the action; and the rather poor sound quality - the original recording is fairly old, but even so Deutsche Gramaphon should have done better.
On balance however the positives considerably outweigh the negatives.
