Lucia Di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti at the Gran Teatre del Liceu, Barcelona

Lucia di Lammermoor is undoubtedly the best-known work of Gaetano Donizetti, even though his output was prolific. It has also been the most frequently performed and staged since its creation in 1835 at the San Carlo theater in Naples. It is one of the beacons of Italian Bel Canto and also one of the most typically romantic of Italian Operas.

 

In 16th century Scotland, torn apart by the wars of religion and succession between Mary Stuart’s Catholics and James VI’s Reformist Protestants, two families, the Ravenswoods and the Ashtons are feuding. In the middle is an impossible love between Lucia, Ashton daughter, and Edgardo, Ravenswood son and sworn enemy of Enrico, Lucia’s brother. It is performed at the Barcelona Gran Teatre del Liceu in an original staging by Damiano Michieletto.
