A stark, emotive performance of Donizetti's tragic opera, created by visionary director Graham Vick.

In the superb setting of Genoa's Teatro Carlo Felice, Graham Vick chooses to employ the simplest staging to create spaces representing the atmosphere of the scenes rather than physical sets, focusing as closely as possible on the passionate relationship of Lucia, Edgardo and Enrico.

Stefania Bonfadelli features here as the tragic heroine. Her performance alongside Placido Domingo in Zeffirelli's 2002 production of La Traviata won her rave reviews with MusicWeb describing her performance as "outstanding", while Argentinean-born Marcelo Alvarez was acclaimed by the Independent as "one of today's finest lyric tenors" when he appeared in Lucia di Lammermoor at the Royal Opera House at the end of 2003.

Graham Vick is the founder and artistic director of Birmingham Opera Company. Under his leadership it has developed into one of the most innovative opera companies in the world, with Vick's revolutionary approach to opera and attempts to bring the art form to a wider audience garnering significant domestic and international attention and awards:

"Once again, though, the most inspiring opera performance came from Graham Vick's Birmingham Opera Company, whose staging of Bernstein's Candide, in a disused car factory with a predominantly amateur cast of hundreds, was in its own way completely unforgettable." The Guardian, Classical Review of the Year 2003
