Opera Western Reserve presents the opera Lucia di Lammermoor  on the evening of  Friday, November 10, at Stambaugh Auditorium.  

Inspired by a novel by Sir Walter Scott, Lucia di Lammermoor is told through the masterful music of Gaetano Donizetti. Sometimes described as a Scottish version of Romeo and Juliet, Lucia and Edgardo are two innocent young lovers who quickly realize that not even the strongest passion will shield them from fate.  After Edgardo is torn away from Lucia by duties in France, she is pressured to marry the wrong man. At her breaking point, Lucia’s emotions climax into one of the most memorable and powerful mad scenes in the world of opera.

The opera begins at 7:30 pm. Tickets range from $25 to $75 and can be purchased through the Stambaugh Box office in person or by clicking here.  Tickets for the pre-opera dinner starting at 5:30 in the Tyler Grand Ballroom at Stambaugh are also available by clicking here.  Those tickets are $60 per person and include dinner prepared by Chef Jeff Chrystal, with an open bar.
