Opera Lyra Ottawa's performances and education-outreach programs have reached the ears, eyes, and brains of audiences for almost 30 years. Lyubov Petrova makes her Canadian debut in the title role of Gaetano Donizetti's tragic work opposite star of the Quebec stage Marc Hervieux. Set in Scotland, this tragic tale spotlights on an emotionally fragile girl, Lucia, caught in a feud between her family and the Ravenswood clan. The sexually charged tale, filled with opera tropes of jealousy, secret love, betrayal, and acrobatic clowning, follows its central characters through feuds and faltered festivities.
The Opera Lyra Ottawa Chorus and Tyrone Paterson–led National Arts Centre Orchestra accompany performances under the lights of the Southam Hall stage in a surround-sound production. All lyrics are sung in Italian with English and French supertitles projected above the stage for opera goers unable to survive on ear candy alone.
