Gaetano Donizetti: Lucia di Lammermoor


OPERA
Tribute to Maria Callas

It has been 15 years since Lucia di Lammermoor was last staged in Athens (2002, Athens Concert Hall). In honour of the ‘eternal Diva’, a select cast of Greek musicians under the direction of Lukas Karytinos attempt at giving a new reading of Lucia di Lammermoor, one of the most demanding – vocally and in terms of performance – Bel canto operas.
