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,
