About Lucia di Lammermoor

Diana Damrau and Aleksandra Kurzak lead two world-class casts in Katie Mitchell’s new production of Donizetti’s tragic opera.

The Lammermoor fortune is in danger unless Lucia makes a good marriage. Her brother Enrico is horrified to learn she has fallen in love with his sworn enemy Edgardo. Edgardo leaves to fight in France; before leaving he and Lucia privately exchange rings. Meanwhile, Enrico hastily arranges Lucia’s marriage to Arturo.

Using a forged letter, Enrico tricks Lucia into believing that Edgardo has been unfaithful. Longing for death, she signs the contract with Arturo – moments before Edgardo returns. Appalled at her infidelity, he vows eternal hatred. Lucia, driven mad, murders Arturo in their wedding bed and dies shortly after. On hearing the news Edgardo kills himself.
