Lucia di Lammermoor Pre-Opera Talk with James Conlon
Forced by her family to marry against her will, Lucia descends into madness. Her chilling, blood-spattered reappearance at the wedding reception has become one of the most iconic scenes in all opera. A tour-de-force of Italian Romantic opera at its most powerful and dramatic, Lucia di Lammermoor is the gleaming jewel in opera’s bel canto crown. In this pre-performance talk originally given by LA Opera's Music Director James Conlon on Saturday, March 15, we examine the opera's major themes, characters and use of music.
