Donizetti's 'Lucia di Lammermoor' From Barcelona
Thursday, January 28, 2016
It's hard to think of a heroine with a fate more heartbreaking — or more shocking — than that of Donizetti's Lucia, whose famous mad scene is one of the greatest moments in any opera. This production of Lucia di Lammermoor from Barcelona features one of today's most acclaimed tenors, Juan Diego Flórez, with the brilliant Romanian soprano Elena Mosuc in the title role.
On World of Opera, host Lisa Simeone presents Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor in a production from the Grand Liceu Theater in Barcelona led by conductor Daniel Gil de Tejada.
Listen to World of Opera on the Operavore stream each week at WQXR.org. The program streams Thursdays at 4 pm, Saturdays at 5 pm and Sundays at 1 pm.
