Lucia di Lammermoor
Inspired by the novel of Sir Walter Scott, The Bride of Lammermoor, the story is told through the masterful music of Gaetano Donizetti. A gripping story of thwarted lovers and feuding families, this tale stands the test of time by being one of the greatest operatic tragedies.
Referred to as a Scottish version of Romeo and Juliet, Lucia and Edgardo are two innocent young lovers who quickly realize that not even the strongest passion will shield them from fate. After Edgardo is torn away from Lucia by duties in France, she is pressured to marry the wrong man. At her breaking point, Lucia’s emotions climax into one of the most memorable and powerful mad scenes in the world of opera.
