Gaetano Donizetti: Lucia di Lammermoor
– Gaetano Donizetti: Lucia di Lammermoor
Libretto by Salvatore Gammarano
Based upon Sir Walter Scott’s historical novel “The Bride of Lammermoor”
With Greek surtitles
One of the most demanding of all operas in terms of vocal requirements, Gaetano Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor is a true gem of Italian bel canto.
A cast of prominent Greek singers will attempt a reading that brings out every last detail of this much-loved score, so redolent of the strange fascination of true bel canto.
