Luise Miller

"A rare, exquisitely well-judged and richly involving revival...It's directed by Michael Grandage and presented in a version by Mike Poulton that is robustly alive both to the play's sardonic take of twisted courtly intrigue and to the fervid force of its attack on the innocence-crushing abuse of power...Highly recommended"
Paul Taylor for The Indpendent

"...Grandage's production, however, is magnificent...Even if Schiller's play finally lapses into melodrama, it is hard to imagine it being better done."
Michael Billington for The Guardian

"We're given the scintillating gist of the drama - its rapier-sharp wit, its whiplash cruelty, its successive body-blows of agonising dilemmas which first torment then break the two young protagonists. "
Charles Spencer for The Daily Telegraph

"Schiller's distinctively operatic writing once again comes across compellingly in this highly accomplished production."
Henry Hitchings for Evening Standard

"The final moments of Luise Miller are almost unbearable. That is a measure of how good this Schiller production is.
Quentin Letts for Daily Mail
