Donizetti’s 1835 operatic masterpiece thunders, swoons, transfixes and haunts. But be forewarned: it never, ever lets up! What choice would you make when the only chance for freedom lies in... madness? Based on an epic 19th century Scottish romance by Sir Walter Scott and containing several of the most thrilling moments in all of opera, Lucia di Lammermoor propels us into a world where women are reluctant pawns in a dynastic quest for powerful family alliances. Tricked by her brother into giving up the man she loves, Lucia submits to his choice of a husband, with tragic consequences for all.
