Set in the Lammermuir Hills of Scotland in the seventeenth century, Lucia di Lammermoor is a tragic opera by Gaetano Donizetti, based on three acts. The Italian libretto is written by Salvadore Cammarano. The opera also takes some of the elements from the novel, The Bride of Lammermoor by Walter Scott. Its story revolves around the emotionally weak Lucy Ashton. The character of Lucia, a Russian soprano is played by the critically acclaimed Albina Shagimuratova. According to Opera News, Albina is “a phenomenon that must be heard to be believed”.
Other cast members include tenor Saimir Pirgu, performing the role of Lucia’s secret lover. Actor’s youthful presence on stage is a crowd pleaser. Previously, internationally acclaimed actress and coloratura soprano Elizabeth Futral played the role of Lucia in the Portland Opera production. The New York Times termed Ms. Futral "vocally luminous, emotionally vulnerable and brilliant". In her appreciation, the magazine also added that she presents a combination of expressive ferocity and vocal elegance perfectly. Other performing cast members include James Creswell, Saimir Pirgu and Stephen Powell among others.
Behind-the-sets team includes conductor Pier Giorgio Morandi, with set design by Daniel Ostling and costumes by Mara Blumenfeld. The choreography is by Daniel Pelzig. "Percorrete le spiaggie vicine", "Appressati, Lucia", "Ah! cedi, cedi" and "Si tragga altrove" are some of the musical numbers included in the opera. The opera has maintained a standard operatic range, appearing as number twenty-one on the Operabase list of the world’s most-performed operas from 2008/09 to 2012/13 season.
The opera narrates the story of Lucia, who falls into madness when her family forces her not marry the one she loves. The blood-spattered repetition scene at the wedding became one of the most iconic ones of the opera. This tragic work of art with its ravishing melodies is the crowning achievement of Donizetti. The opera premiered in 1835, in Naples. Three years later, it was taken to London in 1838, and Donizetti revised it for Paris, a version that debuted in 1839 at the Theatre de la Renaissance. In 1841, the opera made its way to America. The opera has been produced in both Italian and French versions, which have received many recordings.
The "Mad Scene" from the opera has been featured in the movie The Fifth Element. Lucia Di Lammermoor is also mentioned in many novels including Madame Bovary, The Count of Monte Cristo, Where Angels Fear to Tread and The Hotel New Hampshire. It is one of the most fascinating and wonderful operas to watch and that is the reason why Lucia Di Lammermoor tickets are selling so fast.
