Join one of Malta’s top glamorous nights – the opera at the Astra.
Lucia di Lammermoor is a dramma tragico (tragic opera) in three acts by Gaetano Donizetti. Salvadore Cammarano wrote the Italian language libretto loosely based upon Sir Walter Scott’s historical novel The Bride of Lammermoor. The story concerns the emotionally fragile Lucy Ashton (Lucia) who is caught in a feud between her own family and that of the Ravenswoods. The setting is the Lammermuir Hills of Scotland (Lammermoor) in the 17th century.
Teatru Astra has secured top of the range singers to ensure an emotional rollercoaster which this dramma tragico is capable of generating. Who can withstand being carried away by the stupendous sextet “Chi mi frena in tal momento..” or the electrifying pazzia scene? These are just two of the gems which stud the glittering crown which is Donizetti’s masterpiece.
Along with a star-studded cast, which will include Malta’s own Cliff Zammit Stevens and Marvic Monreal, the theatre has secured the services of French musician Thomas Bloch – a worldwide prominent classical soloist specializing in rare instruments who will be playing the Glass Harmonica in the opera.
