LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR
MAY 6 | 9 | 12 | 14 | 2017
THE ELLIE CAULKINS OPERA HOUSE
In Donizetti’s dark dramatic opera, young Lucia is caught in the middle of a feud between her family and the man she loves. Forced by her brother to forsake her love and marry for money, she loses more than her happiness. She loses her mind. After she kills her bridegroom, Lucia plunges headlong into madness in one of opera’s most horrifying and musically gorgeous scenes. A stunning evening of grand opera, this Opera Colorado production will feature traditional costumes and sets.
Celebrated soprano Anna Christy, who sang an acclaimed Lucia with the English National Opera, brings her ethereal Lucia to the stage of the Ellie Caulkins Opera House in grand opera style. The London Times raved… “Christy produced a mesmerizing performance – and a top F note that shook the West End.”
Sung in Italian with English and Spanish subtitles at every seat.
Performances on Saturday, Tuesday and Friday at 7:30PM and on Sunday at 2PM.
Sunday, May 14th performance is Audio Described for the visually impaired.
