This tragic masterpiece, with its ravishing melodies and vocal thrills -- as well as a secret rendezvous, a duel and a murder -- is Italian composer Donizetti's crowning achievement, and one of the most beloved operas ever composed. Loosely based on Sir Walter Scott's historical novel, Lucia di Lammermoor
centers around the emotionally fragile Lucy Ashton (Lucia), who's caught in a vicious feud between families along the hills of Scotland (Lammermoor) in the 17th century. Internationally acclaimed coloratura soprano Elizabeth Futral, praised for her "mesmerizing combination of vocal elegance and expressive ferocity" by The New York Times
, makes her Portland Opera debut as Lucia. This production is sung in Italian, with English supertitles.
