Gaetano Donizetti - Tragic drama in three acts - Savatore Cammarano's libretto after Walter Scott's The Brides of Lammermoor - premiered at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples on September 26, 1835. Sung in Italian, surtitled in French.
New production co-produced with Teatro Verdi de Pisa
In the mists of Scotland, inhabited by ruined towers and ghosts, two young people, born of enemy families, love each other.
This forbidden love can only have one tragic outcome: suicide for the last of the Ravenswood, the madness for Lucia murderous of a hated husband imposed by his brother, which brings us one of the most beautiful tunes in history of the Opera.
From this famous Walter Scott novel inspired by a real fact-divers, the librettist Cammarano and Donizetti, the latter at the height of his art, knew how to draw an opera of a dark beauty.
Lucia, a romantic heroine par excellence, is the throbbing heart, sliding from imaginary life to real assassination and delirium.
Composed in six weeks, Lucia di Lammermoor saved the Naples San Carlo Theater from bankruptcy and toured the world during Donizetti's lifetime. His success has never been denied.
