By Gaetano Donizetti
October 21, 23(m), 26, 29, November 6(m), 2011
Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
Based on an epic 19th century Scottish romance by Sir Walter Scott and containing several of
the most thrilling moments in all of opera, Lucia di Lammermoor propels us into a
world where women are reluctant pawns in a dynastic quest for powerful family alliances.
Tricked by her brother into giving up the man she loves, Lucia submits to his choice of a
husband, with tragic consequences for all. Featuring the eagerly anticipated American debut of
Italian baritone Luca Grassi and a host of major international stars - including Romanian
soprano Elena Mosuc in the title role - making their first appearance on the Dallas Opera
stage. Donizetti's 1835 masterpiece thunders, swoons, transfixes and haunts. But be
forewarned: it never, ever lets up! What choice would you make when the only chance for
freedom lies in... madness?
