Lucia di Lammermoor - ENO Description

Lucia di Lammermoor looks all set to become the highlight of the English National Opera's 2018/2019 season. Written by Donizetti in the Bel Canto style, Lucia di Lammermoor is based on one of Sir Walter Scott's famous romance novels, The Bride of Lammermoor. It's a beautiful, compelling melodrama which delves deep into the nature of family, female repression, and the complex relationship between the individual and society.

In this telling of the tale, Lucia is a beautiful woman doomed to enter a loveless marriage after being tricked by her ambitious brother, who seeks to protect his family's wealth through an advantageous match. Controlled, repressed and - in the end - driven to insanity, Lucia becomes the fulcrum of a devastating psychological drama which still retains its ability to shock. In Donizetti's hands, the narrative is complemented by some of opera's most beautiful melodies, adding to the power of the storyline.

This ENO production will be masterminded by David Alden, a regular Olivier Award winner in the past, while the musical director of the Scottish Opera, Stuart Stratford, will be handling orchestral matters. And the show will find the ideal setting at the London Coliseum, on St. Martin's Lane near Trafalgar Square.
