LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR
By Gaetano Donizetti
February 24 - March 23, 2024
Deceit leads to murder and madness, in Donizetti's masterpiece, based on Sir Walter Scott's The Bride of Lammermoor. To save his family's fortunes, Enrico Ashton has promised his sister Lucia's hand to a Scottish nobleman, instead of Edgardo, the man she loves, and a member of a rival family. The ensuing drama is excitingly captured in Donizetti's beautifully romantic music, with many well-known operatic highlights including Lucia's famous mad scene.
By Giuseppe Verdi
March 9 - 24, 2024
One of Giuseppe Verdi's lesser performed but passionately romantic dramas, Luisa Miller returns to Sarasota Opera after 25 years. Luisa, the daughter of an old soldier, is in love with Carlo, who is really, Rodolfo, the son of the ruthless Count Walter. The count's opposition to the couple's love leads to tragedy, in an opera filled with memorable arias and thrilling ensembles.
DECEIT OUTWITTED (L'infedeltà delusa)
By Joseph Haydn
March 15 - 23, 2024
Joseph Haydn is one of classical music's most famous composers, but his substantial body of opera is virtually unknown. In the delightful comedy, Deceit Outwitted (L'infedeltà delusa), the peasant, Filippo hopes his daughter Sandrina will marry the rich farmer Nencio instead of the poor peasant with whom she is in love. Through a series of comic complications (including a parade of disguises), all is happily resolved, accompanied by Haydn's inventive score and brilliant singing. This will be a Sarasota Opera premiere
