Notes and Editorial Reviews

Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor, based on a Sir Walter Scott novel, follows a tragic romantic story which is very similar to "Romeo and Juliet." Renowned soprano Dame Joan Sutherland skyrocketed to worldwide attention upon her performance in the lead role in 1959. Here, she returns to the role that she was made to play in this beautiful 1986 production, directed by John Copley. Wonderful support is given by brilliant tenor Richard Greager.
