just for you…

Lucia di Lammermoor is a tale drawn from an actual incident between two rival Scottish families in political opposition. It’s a story rivaling any told on the landscape of today’s true crime podcast! Donizetti’s score building to the dramatic climax of the ‘mad scene’ has been a breakthrough vehicle for several beloved sopranos including Dame Joan Sutherland.
