This Luisa Miller could have been a considerable success – it’s well cast, and well conducted by Alexander Joel, with ENO’s orchestra and chorus back to almost top form.
If Elizabeth Llewellyn has done anything better than this Luisa, then I regret not being there. Llewellyn’s singing had secure coloratura, fearless top notes, as well as, much vocal elan and her act
Alexander Joel’s fine conducting, sensitive to the ebb and flow of Verdi’s paragraphs and moulding them into potent enactments of human conflict, makes the strongest possible case for the work in
Therefore, with Alexander Joel’s conducting also being good, there is still much of merit in the evening. It just seems a shame that for a work that only comes to any of London’s major opera house
Thank goodness, then, for the heaven-sent singing, musicianship and saintly good natures of an outstanding cast, made to do daft things, and yet never less than brilliant.
