Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor – the Romeo and Juliet of the Scottish Lowlands!

LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR

Opera

Libretto by Salvadore Cammarano based on the novel The Bride of Lammermoor by Walter Scott

Composer Gaetano Donizetti
Musical director & conductor Paul Mägi
Producer Roman Hovenbitzer (Germany)
Scenographer & costume designer Roy Spahn (Germany)


Donizetti’s opera is about the destiny of a woman. The intrigues of a world ruled by men do not allow her to assert herself. Lucia’s wishes are disregarded, her will is suppressed and her life’s happiness is sacrificed. When existential feelings cannot be expressed openly and honestly, they explode with the force of a nuclear bomb. Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor – the Romeo and Juliet of the Scottish Lowlands – is not simply a private tragedy of love, but also an exceptionally political story in which the masculine power system deeply distorts human relations and finally destroys them for good. Donizetti colours the raging of betrayed love and the dissolving of the rage with the most eloquent music: the revenge is bloody, insanity is terminal. Abused feelings ruin everything and everyone.
Roman Hovenbitzer
