Lucia di Lammermoor Opera Overview

If you cherish the classic tale of star-crossed love in Romeo and Juliet, then Lucia di Lammermoor will sweep you away with its intense romance. The most famous of all bel canto operas, you’ll be transfixed by the passion of the heroine and her lover Edgardo (you’ll long remember their heavenly love duet) and the vocal fireworks of Lucia’s dazzling mad scene, as she breaks your heart while sending spectacular coloratura and high notes soaring. This beautiful period production features a star cast that is not to be missed.
