Get a first look at the production!

By: May. 03, 2022

The Metropolitan Opera presents an audacious new production of Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor, which moves the Bel Canto masterpiece from 18th-century Scotland to a present-day town in the American Rust Belt, with nine performances now through May 21, 2022.

Australian film, theater, and opera director Simon Stone makes his Met debut with this bold staging. In the tale of a young woman from a struggling family who is forced by her brother to marry for money-leading to dire consequences-Stone finds parallels to socioeconomic problems in modern America.

Two of today's most brilliant and in-demand Bel Canto singers make notable Met role debuts in the new production: soprano Nadine Sierra is Lucia, who is in a downward spiral because of the coercive men in her life, and tenor Javier Camarena is her secret lover, Edgardo. Conductor Riccardo Frizza leads a cast that also features baritone Artur Ruciński as Lucia's controlling brother, Enrico, and bass Matthew Rose as her tutor, Raimondo. Joining Stone's creative team are set designer Lizzie Clachan, costume designers Alice Babidge and Blanca Añón, lighting designer James Farncombe, projection designer Luke Halls, and choreographer Sara Erde. Lucia di Lammermoor is a co-production of the Metropolitan Opera and LA Opera.

Review: At Philadelphia’s O23, UNHOLY WARS Shows What’s Old is New Again

According to creator and star tenor Karim Sulayman, UNHOLY WARS, a 70-minute opera pastiche that made its debut on Saturday at Philadelphia Opera’s O23 Festival, “stitches together a collection of baroque music centered around the Middle East and the Crusades, examining the separation of the human race based on creed and color.” The result was a creative multi-visual/musical work with dance, drawing heavily on Monteverdi’s IL COMBATTIMENTO DI TANCREDI E CLORINDA, supplemented by Baroque arias and modern electronic music.
