LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR — Experience the Drama!

The most famous of all bel canto operas, Lucia di Lammermoor offers the perfect combination of vocal fireworks, a ravishing score, and a stunning story of intense romance, passion and rage. This is opera, after all!  Lyric's production of Lucia features a star cast, including Piotr Beczala, Adrian Sâmpetrean, Ryan Opera Center Alum and Civic Opera House favorite, Quinn Kelsey, and the artist that has made Lucia one of her signature roles, Albina Shagimuratova.

Listen below, and find out why she's been called "impeccably passionate...her perfectly placed coloratura thrillingly seducing us with every expressive note...sublime acting and supreme singing." (Houston Chronicle)
