Divinely beautiful melodies by Donizetti that stay in your memory once your hear them, passionate love and equally passionate enmity… halls of an ancient Scots castle, hoop skirts, swords, hats with feathers and, finally, a magnificent opera diva…

"Lucia de Lammermoor" premiered in 1835 at the San Carlo Theatre of Naples. The composer, Gaetano Donizetti, was not only fascinated with the novel "The Bride of Lammermoor" by Walter Scott, which by then had more than once been adjusted to opera, but also had a personal fascination with the plot: one of his ancestors, Donald Izett (whose name was easily metamorphosed  into Donizetti) was a Scott.


Despite the giddy difficulties for performers (or perhaps because of them) this work of Donizetti’s is one of the most popular ones in the world. The first Lucia was the beautiful Fanny Tacchinardi Persiani. During the 19th and 20th centuries all the legendary opera divas have shined out in the part: Adelina Patti, Lily Ponce, Joan Sutherland, Maria Callas, Beverly Sills, Renata Scotto, Edita Gruberova. The 21st century’s prima donnas keep conquering the main character’s cloud-piercing heights of coloratura. Tenors too aspire to their glory; they too have in stock extremely high notes that the composer reserved for them towards the end of the opera.


Lucia di Lammermoor has everything that can be expected of an opera classic: wonderful melodies that instantly stick in mind; passionate love and as passionate hatred against the background of an ancient Scottish castle; a magnificent opera prima donna and a tenor in love with her.


The Music Theatre’s production was named one of the most spectacular events of the 2008-09 opera season and won the Golden Mask National Theater Award and the Casta Diva Russian Opera Award.

03 October 2021 Sun, 19:00 - Gaetano Donizetti "Lucia di Lammermoor" (tragic opera in three acts) (Opera) - Brilliant Classical Stanislavsky Ballet and Opera theatre (established 1887, founded by Stanislavsky)


Act 1
The castle guard is searching for an intruder. Normanno, the captain of the guard, tells Enrico that he believes that the man is Edgardo, and that he comes to the castle to meet Lucia. It is confirmed that Edgardo is indeed the intruder. Enrico reaffirms his hatred for the family and his determination to end the relationship.
Lucia waits for Edgardo. She tells her maid Alisa that she has seen the ghost of a girl killed on the very same spot by a jealous Ravenswood ancestor. Alisa tells Lucia that the apparition is a warning and that she must give up her love for Edgardo. Edgardo enters. For political reasons, he must leave immediately for France. He hopes to make his peace with Enrico and marry Lucia. Lucia tells him this is impossible, and instead they take a sworn vow of marriage and exchange rings. Edgardo leaves.

Act 2
Preparations have been made for the imminent wedding of Lucia to Arturo. Enrico worries about whether Lucia will really submit to the wedding. He shows his sister a forged letter seemingly proving that Edgardo has forgotten her and taken a new lover. Enrico leaves Lucia to further persuasion this time by Raimondo, Lucia's chaplain and tutor, that she should renounce her vow to Edgardo, for the good of the family, and marry Arturo.
Arturo arrives for the marriage. Lucia acts strangely, but Enrico explains that this is due to the death of her mother. Arturo signs the marriage contract, followed reluctantly by Lucia. At that point Edgardo suddenly appears in the hall. Raimondo prevents a fight, but he shows Lucia's signature on the marriage contract to Edgardo. Edgardo curses Lucia.

Act 3
Enrico visits Edgardo to challenge him to a duel. They will meet by the graveyard of the Ravenswoods, near the Wolf's Crag.
Raimondo interrupts the marriage celebrations to tell the guests that Lucia has gone mad and killed her bridegroom. Lucia enters. She imagines being with Edgardo, soon to be happily married.
Edgardo is resolved to kill himself on Enrico's sword. He learns that Lucia is dying and then Raimondo comes to tell him that she has already died. Edgardo stabs himself with a dagger, hoping to be re-unified with Lucia in heaven.
