Lucia di Lammermoor is the story of Lucia and Edgardo, innocent young lovers from opposing houses in Scotland. When Lucia is coerced into marrying another nobleman based on her brother's lies that Edgardo has betrayed her, Lucia starts to lose her sanity and their worlds spiral out of control. Often considered the Scottish version of Romeo & Juliet, this gripping story of thwarted lovers and feuding families has remained a favorite of opera-goers worldwide.
