Opera Colorado Archives: Anna Christy as Lucia and Tim Mix as Enrico in Lucia di Lammermoor (2017)
In this clip from Opera Colorado’s 2017 production of Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor, soprano Anna Christy (Lucia) and baritone Tim Mix (Enrico) marinate in all of the delicious drama before Lucia’s descent into madness in Act III.
Lucia has secretly wed Edgardo, the mortal enemy of her family. Learning of her nuptials, Lucia’s ambitious brother Enrico forges a letter to her. The letter contains a message from Edgardo, renouncing their love. In “Soffriva nel pianto” (I suffered in tears), Lucia mourns the loss of her happiness and Edgardo’s betrayal, as Enrico doubles down on his deception. #SempreOC
