Lucia di Lammermoor

Presented by Los Angeles Opera

Lucia is trapped in an impossible situation. Her abusive brother hates the man she loves. Worse, he's forcing her to marry someone else in a last-ditch effort to shore up the family's failing finances. Her only way out seems to be murder...

Donizetti's gorgeously moody score masterfully conveys Lucia's isolation and instability as she slips into a terrifying world of madness. Two extraordinary sopranos—who launched their careers at LA Opera—will take on the iconic title role: Amanda Woodbury, who's now a star at the Metropolitan Opera, and Liv Redpath, who'll sing Lucia at the Deutsche Oper Berlin this year. Tenor Arturo Chacón-Cruz returns as Lucia's beloved Edgardo, with Alexander Birch Elliott as Enrico and bass Eric Owens as Raimondo.

Lina González-Granados leads the proceedings in her first outing as the company's new Resident Conductor. Director Simon Stone creates a powerful new production that moves the story to a present-day world of desperation and decline.

Sung in Italian with English subtitles. 

Please note: This production contains adult subject matter and depictions of violence and drug use.
