Royal Opera: Lucia di Lammermoor

Venue Raffertys Theatre
Dates 28 May 2016

New Production! Visionary British theatre director Katie Mitchell brings Donizetti’s tragic masterpiece to Covent Garden for the first time in more than a decade. Based on a novel by Sir Walter Scott, the opera tells the story of an ongoing feud between two families in 17th century Scotland that has terrible consequences for two young lovers. The wild third act contains undoubtedly one of opera’s most poignant and gripping mad scenes. The title role will be sung by German soprano Diana Damrau, an expert in the coloratura repertory, while American tenor Charles Castronovo takes on the reckless and passionate Edgardo, her secret lover.
