Philharmonie im Gasteig Munich
Munich, Germany

Join for a concert performance of Donizetti's tragic opera Lucia di Lammermoor, live from the Philharmonie im Gasteig in Munich. Starring Diana Damrau and Joseph Calleja, the production is conducted by Jesús López-Cobos with the Münchner Opernorchester and Münchner Opernchor.

The cycle of concertante opera performances in the Philharmonie in Gasteig reaches another peak with Gaetano Donizetti's masterpiece Lucia di Lammermoor. In what is probably his most famous opera, the composer masters the clashing of high-grade pulsating passions confidently and with musical refinement. Italian opera had never been this venturous, never this attractive! Interpreting the mad scene in Lucia di Lammermoor has been a career highlight for every great soprano. Now, the exceptional singer Diana Damrau once again takes on the challenge of connecting vocal peak performance with dramatic vehemence. Her musical partner Joseph Calleja will ensure that there is plenty of vocal brilliance and an unforgettable bel canto experience. A dream cast for a legendary opera!
