Everything about this production is wonderful- the cast, the staging, the costumes, the music.
In the discussion after Sunday's performance, one woman who saw Sutherland in the part of Lucia in the 50's said that Ms. Bard (Lucia) surpassed that-...continued

I'm always amazed at the wonderful scenery in this small venue, and this was no exception. Lucia's voice is outstanding in a difficult role!!

Description

Composed in 1832, at the height of Donizetti’s fame, and based on the novel by Sir Walter Scott, Lucia is the ultimate tragic tale. Forced into a marriage of convenience, Lucia ends up losing her mind and murdering her husband on her wedding night. Revived by the legendary Maria Callas in 1952, Lucia is a tour de force for coloratura sopranos, especially the mad scene, but the score goes well beyond that, showcasing a wealth of ensembles, arias and sublime choral writing.
