WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In Donizetti's dark drama, young Lucia is caught in the middle of a feud between her family and the man she loves. Forced by her brother to forsake her love and marry for money, she loses more than her happiness--she loses her mind. After she kills her bridegroom, Lucia plunges headlong into madness to Donizetti's magnificent score in one of opera's most famous, horrifying, and musically gorgeous scenes. Featuring two dazzling casts and conducted by WNO Music Director Philippe Auguin, you won't want to miss this operatic thriller that seems like "a novel that Emily Brontë or the young Charles Dickens should have written" (The Daily Telegraph). In Italian with English supertitles.
