Opera Orlando closes out its 2023-24 MainStage series with a “Game of Thrones” inspired take on Donizetti’s bel canto masterpiece “Lucia di Lammermoor” at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts on April 19 and 21, 2024

A tale of love, jealousy, betrayal, and madness, “Lucia di Lammermoor” tells the story of Lady Lucia Ashton, who is torn between allegiance to her family and her love for Edgardo–sworn enemy to the Ashton household.

A forced marriage leads to tragic ends for all involved in this gorgeous operatic treatment of Sir Walter Scott’s gothic romance “The Bride of Lammermoor.”

For the performances, Steinmetz Hall will be transformed into the North country in this dark, original production designed and directed by Opera Orlando artistic director Grant Preisser, with Robert Wood, making his Company debut, conducting the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra.

Grammy Award-winning baritone Preisser leads a stellar cast as Lucia’s duplicitous and desperate brother Enrico with the stunning American soprano Marnie Breckenridge making her Company debut in the title role of Lucia.

Also making a Company debut is Chinese baritone Zaikuan Song in the role of the cleric Raimondo, and Opera Orlando welcomes back acclaimed tenor and Company favorite Ben Gulley as Lucia’s passionate lover Edgardo.
