Opera in three acts by Gaetano Donizetti is called one of the highest examples of the Italian style of bel canto. Its libretto is written on the plot of the novel by Walter Scott "The Bride of Lammermoor". The events of the opera unfold in a Scottish castle in the 18th century. In the center of the narrative is the tragic love story of the aristocrat Lucia to Edgar of the Ravenswood family, the longtime enemies of the Lammermoors. In Donizetti's opera, there is everything for fans of romance - piercing feelings, the loneliness of heroes, gothic castle, a marriage of convenience, intrigue, duel ... On the stage of the "New Opera" the production was directed by the director from Germany Hans-Joachim Fry. In 2016, he already visited Moscow - he worked on the opera of Richard Strauss "Ariadne auf Naxos" with the troupe of Boris Pokrovsky Theater. Fry is one of the leaders of the modern musical theater, his works are usually distinguished by a completely new look at the classics and non-ordinary interpretations of meanings.


Act 1
The castle guard is searching for an intruder. Normanno, the captain of the guard, tells Enrico that he believes that the man is Edgardo, and that he comes to the castle to meet Lucia. It is confirmed that Edgardo is indeed the intruder. Enrico reaffirms his hatred for the family and his determination to end the relationship.
Lucia waits for Edgardo. She tells her maid Alisa that she has seen the ghost of a girl killed on the very same spot by a jealous Ravenswood ancestor. Alisa tells Lucia that the apparition is a warning and that she must give up her love for Edgardo. Edgardo enters. For political reasons, he must leave immediately for France. He hopes to make his peace with Enrico and marry Lucia. Lucia tells him this is impossible, and instead they take a sworn vow of marriage and exchange rings. Edgardo leaves.

Act 2
Preparations have been made for the imminent wedding of Lucia to Arturo. Enrico worries about whether Lucia will really submit to the wedding. He shows his sister a forged letter seemingly proving that Edgardo has forgotten her and taken a new lover. Enrico leaves Lucia to further persuasion this time by Raimondo, Lucia's chaplain and tutor, that she should renounce her vow to Edgardo, for the good of the family, and marry Arturo.
Arturo arrives for the marriage. Lucia acts strangely, but Enrico explains that this is due to the death of her mother. Arturo signs the marriage contract, followed reluctantly by Lucia. At that point Edgardo suddenly appears in the hall. Raimondo prevents a fight, but he shows Lucia's signature on the marriage contract to Edgardo. Edgardo curses Lucia.

Act 3
Enrico visits Edgardo to challenge him to a duel. They will meet by the graveyard of the Ravenswoods, near the Wolf's Crag.
Raimondo interrupts the marriage celebrations to tell the guests that Lucia has gone mad and killed her bridegroom. Lucia enters. She imagines being with Edgardo, soon to be happily married.
Edgardo is resolved to kill himself on Enrico's sword. He learns that Lucia is dying and then Raimondo comes to tell him that she has already died. Edgardo stabs himself with a dagger, hoping to be re-unified with Lucia in heaven.
