The backstage intrigues and personal hostility surrounding the premiere in Naples of Verdi's adaptation of Schiller's play, Kabale und Liebe, are reflected on stage. Luisa Miller is an important transitional work, marking both the end of Verdi's first period and the beginning of his second, in which the first two acts recall the operas of Bellini and Donizetti, and the third anticipates the musical style and dramatic atmosphere of La Traviatta.
