Lucia di Lammermoor
By Gaetano Donizetti
A young bride loses it on her wedding night.
Lucia di Lammermoor is an acting and musical tour de force—one of the acid tests of what a great soprano is all about. Lucia is the unlucky Scottish girl who becomes a pawn in her family’s plot to revive its fortunes, is forced into a marriage against her will and butchers her bridegroom on their wedding night. The role has been sung by some of the great sopranos of our time. Now, Anna Christy, acclaimed star at the Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera, and Lyric Opera of Chicago, brings her brilliant interpretation to South Florida audiences. Experience this haunting, atmospheric opera, complete with crumbling castles and ghostly apparitions, plus a breathtaking mad scene that will have you pinned to your seat. Come see why audiences continue to flock to this timeless—and bloody—romantic classic.
Sung in Italian with English and Spanish projected surtitles
