The new production of Lucia di Lammermoor, which should have inaugurated the 2020-2021 season, brings Donizetti back to celebrate the 7th of December (St. Ambrose day, Milan’s patron saint) after the historical edition in 1967 with Claudio Abbado and Renata Scotto. The Musical Director presents his second Donizetti title at La Scala following Don Pasquale, complemented by the taste and experience of Yannis Kokkos, director, set designer, and costume designer who already has two inaugural performances under his belt: Götterdämmerung and Iphigénie en Aulide. Scotto’s pupil Lisette Oropesa steps into Lucia’s shoes and joins her coprotagonist Juan Diego Flórez in a duo that shines for their elegance, virtuosity, and stylistic awareness and are already well ensconced in opera lovers’ hearts.
