Performed at the Bankhead Theater March 14, 15, 21 and 22.
Lucia di Lammermoor is a tragic story that serves as a protest against deceitful tactics and a practice of forced marriage that is unfortunately still current in some parts of the world. Lucia is a beautiful young woman deeply in love with a young man from a family hated by her villainous brother. Her brother forces her into a political marriage for his own benefit, using deceit, lies, and forgery. Although the tale ends in tragedy for everyone, Donizetti’s not-to-be-missed music is among the most glorious in opera and its mad scene has been a dramatic and vocal vehicle for making stars of sopranos like Maria Callas and Dame Joan Sutherland.
