Raimondo – Lucia di Lammermoor – Donizetti
4 November, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 8 November, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
Mainstage Production – Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti
Donizetti’s beloved bel canto masterpiece is interpreted in a whole new Covid-compliant concept: Lucia finds herself at the beginning of the opera in an isolation ward, surrounded by plastic curtaining; she relives the events that led up to her madness, and try as she might to make meaningful contact with others, no-one will come within nine feet of her… the time is the present. This production will be performed live in front of an invited, masked audience only, who will be seated according to social distance guidelines.
