Virginia Opera Presents Donizetti's "Lucia di Lammermoor"

Virginia Opera is in town this weekend, presenting Gaetano Donizetti's "Lucia di Lammermoor."  The opera is "high drama – at its best."  The most iconic of all bel canto operas, it's the consummate tale of thwarted love and dashed expectations. "Lucia" clearly paints a sensitive portrait of a woman at the breaking point, fully expressed in the most haunting and well-known mad scene ever produced.

Performances are Friday evening at 8:00 and Sunday afternoon at 2:30 in the Carpenter Theatre.  Artistic Director Adam Turner stopped by to chat with me about this production.  Enjoy our chat!

Yours in good music,
