"Brenda Rae is a High Octane Lucia."—Broadway World

Returning to the Opera Philadelphia stage for the first time in more than two decades, this operatic classic takes a dreamlike, ethereal turn courtesy of “A-plus director” (The Philadelphia Inquirer) Laurent Pelly, who was named Best Director at the 2016 International Opera Awards.

Coloratura soprano Brenda Rae showcases her “consummate musicality and killer technique” (Financial Times) in the title role. Baritone Troy Cook brings his “dynamic elegance” (Opera News) to the role of her brother, Enrico, alongside tenor Michael Spyres, known for his “limitless grace and vocal purity” (The Guardian), in his company debut as Edgardo. Maestro Corrado Rovaris, familiar with the Donizetti tradition having likewise hailed from Bergamo, Italy, leads the Opera Philadelphia Orchestra and Chorus.
