In Italian with English Surtitles
In the brooding Scottish lowlands, it is men who call the shots. Clan rivalries, political maneuvering, and ancient vendettas leave no place for a woman who falls in love with the wrong man.
Lucia is caught in the brutal web of her brother's manipulation, her lover's jealous rage, and the implacable enmity between their two clans. When she is bullied into an arranged marriage, her fragile spirit is shattered.
In the most celebrated mad scene in all of opera, Donizetti's entrancing melodic lines entwine round Lucia's unraveling coloratura. This is the archetype of romantic bel canto opera...tempestuous passions, murder, madness, and doom, spun out in glorious song.
