A Brisbane Bel Canto event

A NEW FESTIVAL FOR THE BRISBANE STAGE

Lucia di Lammermoor
by Gaetano Donizetti

Superstar soprano, Jessica Pratt, brings her internationally renowned performance of Lucia to Brisbane audiences for the first time. Joined by her long-time collaborator and master of bel canto repertoire Richard Mills conducting the Queensland Symphony Orchestra and the Opera Queensland Chorus.

Deceived by her ruthless brother into believing that her true love, Edgardo, has betrayed her, Lucia is forced into an arranged marriage to save the family fortunes. The wedding is interrupted by Edgardo’s unexpected return; his hateful curses for her faithlessness precipitate Lucia’s descent into despair, murder and madness.

From the tragic tale of romantic obsession in Sir Walter Scott’s novel, The Bride of Lammermoor, Donizetti created a compelling portrait of a woman whose passion knows no limits, culminating in Lucia’s famous ‘Mad Scene’. This evocative concert production, directed by Patrick Nolan, beautifully embraces the intensely dramatic and imaginative score, promising to be one of the musical events of the year.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles
