“When great emotions cannot be truthfully expressed, they explode with the power of an atom bomb” (Barbara Wysocka). Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor - the Romeo and Juliet of the Scottish Lowlands so to speak - is far from being a private tragic love story. Rather, it is above all a political tale, which shows how a totalitarian system distorts human relationships at their very core and finally consumes them. The development and extinguishing of unrequited love has provided Donizetti with his most haunting music. Revenge is bloody; madness deadly. And the agony of emotions - according to the Director - “destroys everything and everyone.”
