Lucia di Lammermoor

Join us on Saturday, May 19th, from 1 to 4 pm for Lyric Opera of Chicago's bel canto favorite, Lucia di Lammermoor. In Scotland, Lucia and Edgardo are breathlessly, desperately in love - but their two clans are bitter rivals. Lucia’s villainous brother Enrico sets out to kill his young sister’s romance. And he deploys every devious device he can muster, including lies, forgery, and, finally, the false revelation of Edgardo’s infidelity. Little wonder that Lucia is mentally crushed and destroyed, driven to madness and murder before she dies of a broken heart.
