In Lucia di Lammermoor - one of the masterpieces of bel canto - Gaetano Donizetti used all of his talent as a composer to depict people who are torn apart by hatred, love and madness, through prodigious vocal lines.
In the beautiful Cirque Royal, stage director Guy Joosten presents an interpretation of this work where the world of reality and its power struggles confronts the world of fantasy and dreams to which Lucia attempts to escape. Orchestra conductor Julian Reynolds leads La Monnaie Symphony Orchestra in the magnificent and demanding score of this romantic opera.
From 14 to 28 April 2009 - Cirque Royal
