Lucia di Lammermoor

AUD69 – AUD139

Set in stormy Scotland, this 1835 opera, inspired by Sir Walter Scott’s gothic tale “The Bride of Lammermoor,” follows the tragic love between Lucia Ashton and Edgardo of Ravenswood, amidst their feuding families. The Ashtons, facing financial ruin, pressure Lucia into marrying wealthy Lord Arturo Bucklaw to save them. Amidst this turmoil, Lucia descends into madness with devastating consequences. Melbourne Opera welcomes back soprano Elena Xanthoudakis, known for her vibrant performances in Rossini’s “Otello” and Donizetti’s “Anna Bolena” and “Maria Stuarda.” Joining her are tenor Henry Choo and baritone Simon Meadows. Suzanne Chaundy, acclaimed for directing the Bendigo Ring Cycle and “Maria Stuarda” in 2023, returns to direct this captivating bel canto masterpiece.
