Lucia di Lammermoor

Buy Tickets

Superstar soprano Natalie Dessay lavishes her renowned vocal technique and acting prowess on the iconic title role. Though Lucia and Edgardo (Giuseppe Filianoti) are deeply in love, Lucia’s malevolent brother Enrico (Mariusz Kwiecien) forces her to marry one of his political allies. Lucia’s resulting emotional collapse culminates in one of the most celebrated “mad scenes” in all of opera—a gripping tour de force. John Relyea appears as the avuncular Raimondo and Joseph Colaneri conducts.
