lucia3 Family feuds, passion and madness

Scotland. Between two feuding families a love affair is born. Lucia and Edgardo secretly pledge themselves in marriage. But Lucia’s brother, who is bent on separating them, convinces Lucia that Edgardo has forgotten her and forces her to marry another man. Lucia goes mad, kills her bridegroom, and ultimately dies herself. When Edgardo finds out, he commits suicide to be reunited with her in death.

The world debut of Juan Diego Flórez in the role of Edgardo in Donizetti’s second most frequently staged work.
The set, dominated by a leaning glass tower amid a ravaged, desolate landscape, recalls that Scotland is at war, torn apart by the ambitions of rival factions.
