Star soprano Beverly Sills takes on one of her most acclaimed roles as the title heroine of Donizetti’s bel canto drama, bringing dramatic truth to the character of the innocent Scottish girl forced into a political marriage and delivering vocal fireworks in Lucia’s celebrated mad scene. The great Nicolai Gedda gives a memorable and impassioned performance as Edgardo, Lucia’s beloved. Ryan Edwards is her hard-hearted brother, Enrico, and Ezio Flagello sings the loyal tutor Raimondo.
