Gaetano Donizetti

Lucia di Lammermoor

Love. Honour. Obey.
Tricked into a loveless marriage by her domineering brother, Lucia retreats into silence. Is madness her only escape?

25 Oct - 05 Dec 2018

With themes of rival families, thwarted love, unhealthy obsessions, and a doomed political marriage, Lucia di Lammermoor is Donizetti‘s most compelling romantic drama.

Based on Walter Scott’s novel The Bride of Lammermoor, the story traces how Lucia, an innocent woman, is manipulated by the men in her life until, no longer willing to submit to their control, she descends into insanity. An example of the bel canto school of 19th-century Italian opera, Donizetti’s score is full of beautiful melodies as well as psychological insights.

Olivier Award-winning David Alden directs this masterpiece on its return to ENO after eight years. Conductor Stuart Stratford, Music Director of Scottish Opera, makes a welcome return to the London Coliseum. Following her outstanding success as Rosina in our recent revival of The Barber of Seville, Sarah Tynan returns for her role debut as Lucia.
