Originally released on DVD in 2009, Anna Netrebko's unforgettable performance in Donizetti’s Lucia Di Lammermoor is now available on blu-ray for the first time!
This blu-ray release was originally broadcast live in HD from The Met on February 7, 2009. In addition to Netrebko’s spectacular performance, Mariusz Kwiecien’s Enrico delivers theatrical truth with a matchless baritone with the luster of polished mahogany.
This Met performance of director Mary Zimmerman’s “imaginative staging…and
nuanced portrayals” (Times) is a tour de force of music and theatricality.
Having dazzled opera audiences from St. Petersburg to L.A. as Lucia, Anna Netrebko triumphantly returns to the Metropolitan Opera in this touchstone coloratura role!
