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.
