Buy Tickets For Metropolitan Opera: Lucia di LammermoorBuy Tickets

Back for 2017

A compelling and disturbing look at mental illness in a world of violent feuds and eerie folklore, Lucia di Lammermoor is be one the of the repertoire's most memorable tales with a score that will haunt you long after you leave the auditorium. Sopranos Olga Peretyatko and Pretty Yende will share the lead role, opposite Vittorio Grigolo and Michael Fabiano as her lover Edgardo in this ill-fated rollercoaster of an opera.

New Production

The romantic wilds of 19th century Scotland come to life in Mary Zimmerman's searing production of Donizetti's shocking tale of madness and murder. As the only daughter of the Lammermoor clan, the fragile Lucia is expected to marry tactically into a local family against her own wishes, and that of her secret lover Edgardo, a member of the Ravenswoods, the sworn enemies of the Lammermoors.

When Edgardo is despatched to France on business, Lucia's brother forces her to wed, an action that leads the desolate young woman to strike out in bloody revenge.
