About

Synopsis 
In the Scottish highlands, a feud drives men to murder and a woman to madness. Fragile Lucia secretly loves Edgardo, the sworn enemy of her brother, Enrico. To ensure the Lammermoor family retains its standing, Enrico is determined to marry his sister to the scion of a powerful family. Enrico’s deceitful scheme forces Lucia into a loveless marriage, driving the devastated girl toward madness. In the battle between love and family, will anyone win? 
 
Hailed by the New York Times for her magnetism and seductive tones, famed Soprano Lisette Oropesa plays the role of Lucia. Ornate costumes and grand, gloomy Scottish castles are the backdrop for this Arizona Opera production of Donizetti’s dramma tragic, set in the 17th century. Sung in Italian with English subtitles. 

Yesterday I was interviewed by Erika Reyna with 100.3 La Kalle about Lucia at Arizona Opera

Review: 'Lucia' star stuns Tucson audience

"You could exhaust the dictionary looking for the perfect words to describe coloratura soprano Lisette Oropesa’s performance at Tucson Music Hall Saturday night. “Arresting.” “Stunning.” “Magnificent.” “Sublime.” Extraordinary.” They come to mind alongside “brilliant,” “breath-taking,” ‘divine” and “fearless.”"
