On the hills of Lammermoor, in southern Scotland, at sunrise each morning, Lucia meets a mysterious young man with whom she has fallen in love: Edgardo, from the Ravenswood clan. But, as in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the lovers are from feuding families and their love is prohibited. Sir Walter Scott’s novel was inspired by the true story of Janet Dalrymple, who murdered her husband on their wedding night and paid for her crime with her sanity. By setting it to music, Gaetano Donizetti provided romantic Italian opera with one of its emblematic works, noted for Lucia’s “mad scene”, an aria demanding exceptional technique from the performer as well as great dramatic sensitivity. Director Andreï Serban adds the final touch, transcending the crux of the drama in an expression of liberating joy that severs the bonds of a suffocating male‑dominated society.
