Lucia di Lammermoor
June 28 - July 27, 2018
Lucia di Lammermoor

Description

Lucia is a woman on the edge of insanity: deceived by her brother, bereft of her lover, she marries a man she does not love and descends into madness. The sopranos that conquer her stratospheric notes are some of the greatest the world has ever seen. Jessica Pratt has joined the ranks of Nellie Melba and Joan Sutherland: one of just three Australians to sing this role on the hallowed La Scala stage. Passions run hot on the cold moors of Scotland, and Donizetti traces every moment with exquisite music. The score is full of highlights, but none compare with the dazzling coloratura of Lucia’s mad scene.
