What happens when your love destroys you?

Lucia’s forbidden infatuation with Edgardo, sworn enemy of her brother, is her only chance for liberation… or damnation.

Witness Fulham Opera’s impassioned contemporary production, in which the ghosts of the past make a frightful and unwelcome return. Donizetti’s heroine defies adversity in all its forms as she endures a relentless struggle for love, survival and identity.

Michael Thrift conducts Donizetti’s masterful score in director Jim Manganello’s haunting re-imagining of the tragic and timeless tale by Walter Scott.

 

Live piano music by Ben Woodward, performed in Italian with English surtitles.
