About the production

  • Run time: 3hrs 15min, 1 intermission

The tragic tale of "the bride of Lammermoor" has always been a favorite of opera-goers and sopranos alike. Yet with the riveting Lisette Oropesa in the title role, Lucia's plight and descent into madness take on another dimension. Benjamin Bernheim sings Edgardo, the man she loves but is not allowed to marry. Instead, her overbearing brother Enrico (George Petean) forces her into a union with the rich Arturo (Josh Lovell) to save the family fortunes.

Gaetano Donizetti (1797–1848) was one of the most prolific opera composers in the art form's history. In a career abbreviated by mental illness and premature death, he composed 65 operas, plus orchestral and chamber music. Today Donizetti is recognized not only as an important figure in operatic history and a key influence on Verdi, but also as a great composer in his own right.

The libretto for Lucia is by Italian librettist and playwright Salvatore Cammarano (1801–52), and is based on the novel The Bride of Lammermoor by Sir Walter Scott (1771–1832), scottish historical novelist, poet, playwright and historian.
