“A fine actress with a fresh timbre and a compellingly musical command of flowing line and florid decoration, she looked

terrific … Ciofi brought to mind the young Lella Cuberli’s fine recording of the piece.”


Donizetti’s opera in three acts showcases the brilliant young Italian soprano Patrizia Ciofi, alongside operatic superstar Roberto Alagna. Ciofi, who was brought in to deputise for the ailing Nathalie Dessay, establishes herself in her own right and gives a truly masterful and lyrical portrayal of Donizetti’s great heroine, in what is acknowledged to be the archetype of the romantic Italian opera.


While the opera reduces Sir Walter Scott’s complex novel to a three-person constellation and to a great extent ignores the political circumstances that are at the heart of the family feud, the desperate love story of Lucy and Edgar contains such passionate drama as to overshadow anything that has gone before.
