Lucia di Lammermoor with Opera Australia

  • The Opera House Sydney Australia (map)

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.

The blood-covered bride emerges from her chamber a vocal whirling dervish, while the glass harmonica plays in haunting accompaniment.

Carlo Montanaro conducts this brilliant cast in a compelling production by John Doyle with period designs by Liz Ascroft.
