A new version of Donizetti’s tragedy directed by Katie Mitchell. With her family’s fortune in danger, ‘Lucia Di Lammermoor’ is under pressure to find a suitable husband, but to her brother’s horror she has fallen in love with his enemy.
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
