Based on Schiller's play The Robbers, I masnadieri was commissioned by Her Majesty's Theatre in London where it was first performed in 1847, conducted by the composer. Once again Verdi was fascinated by the idea of giving musical expression to the eerie and earthy elements in his source. No wonder, then, that the work had many detractors among critics but was a popular success with its audience.
