LA Opera brings Gaetano Donizetti's tragic opera Lucia di Lammermoor back to Los Angeles for the first time in a decade. Loosely based on Sir Walter Scott's historical novel, Lucia concerns the emotionally fragile Lucy Ashton, who's caught in a vicious feud between families. The setting is the hills of Scotland (Lammermoor) in the 17th century. Donizetti wrote Lucia in 1835 -- a time when Europeans were highly interested in the history and culture of Scotland, having romanticized its violent wars and feuds, and its folklore and mythology. This production is sung in Italian, with English supertitles. Learn More

Too long without a break and it was getting boring. I felt asleep.
Roger Salas, the highly respected dance critic from Spain’s leading daily newspaper, El Pais, wrote…the two young talents that created and who now lead the Nuevo Ballet Espanol, give a practical demonstration of how both serious work and responsible production values are the necessary ingredients to establish a dance company, and from that, examine the possibilities for a new style of dance. Angel and Carlos dance with soul, they take care with their form and their gestures, and they never fall into the excesses of pseudo-folklore, or a desire to be too contemporary that so damage this genre of dance. And if it is virtuosity that we are talking about, we can already class these two as new stars.
