Audiences can look forward to a gothic story of love and madness based on a tale by Sir Walter Scott, the man behind the knightly adventure, Ivanhoe.

_MG_2111_copyLucia is an innocent pawn in a political family feud masterminded by her scheming brother. He manipulates Lucia into giving up her beloved for marriage to a man she loathes. When she begins to realise that her brother has exploited her and ruined her life, her sanity cracks in two with tragically horrifying consequences.

Donizetti is one of Italy’s greatest and most prolific opera composers. As one of the prime movers of Romanticism in Italy, he wrote more than 60 operas, of which Lucia di Lammermoor is one of the most regularly performed operas in today’s repertoire. Donizetti’s music boasts a wealth of details that challenge singers to their utmost limits with colour and virtuosity, and Lucia’s mad scene is one of the most famous examples of his magisterial art.

Isabella Bywater is responsible for stage direction and set design for this production of Lucia di Lammermoor. She has worked as a set designer in opera houses including the Royal Opera, Covent Garden and the English National Opera in London and she is now making the leap to director. Lucia di Lammermoor is conducted by Martin André.
