Nadine Sierra and Javier Camarena embody the lovers in this Bayerische Staatsoper production

Gothic ruins and ill-fated love affairs: such are the key ingredients of Walter Scott's The Bride of Lammermoor. Donizetti added music which carries us away towards a tragedy shrouded in mist and abounding in rivalry and traumatized, complex personalities.

Lucia herself is as brittle as glass. Around her are her stern chaplain, her scheming brother, her hapless secret fiancé, and the bridegroom she will murder after the ceremony, turning it into a "blood wedding".

Lucia and Edgardo's love affair is foredoomed, like that of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. A long feud has driven their families apart and to love a member of the opposing clan is anathema.

Lucia di Lammermoor shows us the Romantic model of fragile, weightless womanhood. It is epitomized by Lucia, a character who arises at the point where the realm of the spirit blends with that of dreams. Enclosed in her own spirituality, sublime and inaccessible, she finds expression only in the "mad scene", when she evokes her pain and melancholy to become the magical enigma of an obsession that has sunk into insanity.

With the support of:
