Lucia di Lammermoor:
Lucia is a woman on the edge of insanity: deceived by her brother, bereft of her lover, she marries a man she does not love and descends into madness.
The sopranos that conquer her stratospheric notes are some of the greatest the world has ever seen. Jessica Pratt has joined the ranks of Nellie Melba and Joan Sutherland: one of just three Australians to sing this role on the hallowed La Scala stage.
Now, she returns home to make her Sydney Opera House debut.
Passions run hot on the cold moors of Scotland, and Donizetti traces every moment with exquisite music. The score is full of highlights, but none compare with the dazzling coloratura of Lucia’s mad scene.
The blood-covered bride emerges from her chamber a vocal whirling dervish, while the glass harmonica plays in haunting accompaniment.
Pratt performs her celebrated Lucia with Michael Fabiano’s intense Edgardo and Giorgio Caoduro’s menacing Enrico.
Carlo Montanaro conducts this brilliant young cast in a compelling production by John Doyle with period designs by Liz Ascroft.
