LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR Gaetano Donizetti – Opera in three acts Sung in Italian – Running time: c2 hours 50 minutes (including 1 interval)

Lucia di Lammermoor tells the story of an ongoing feud between two families in 17th-century Scotland that has terrible consequences for two young lovers. It contains what is undoubtedly one of opera’s most poignant and gripping mad scenes, and is regarded as one of Donizetti’s finest works. The opera has not been seen at the Royal Opera House in more than a decade, so this new production by Katie Mitchell will be a particularly important and exciting event. The title role will be sung by Diana Damrau,, an expert in the coloratura reperory, while American tenor Charles Castronovo takes on that of her secret lover, the reckless and passionate Edgardo
