The Opera Opens Next Month!

The Madness of Matrimony


The  41st Season of the Pensacola Opera opens in January as they bring Donizetti’s masterpiece, Lucia di Lammermoor, to life on the Saenger stage! Set against the haunting backdrop of 19th century Scotland, this tragic tale of love, betrayal, and madness is truly a grand opening to the season that you won’t want to miss.

Step into the world of Lucia Ashton, a woman caught in the web of family expectations and forbidden passion. Lucia is madly in love with Edgardo, leader of the Ravenswoods, her family’s fiercest political enemies. However, her marriage to Lord Arturo Bucklaw has already been arranged by her brother Enrico, in order to save their family from poverty. Caught in the middle of the two rival families, Lucia loses her strength and descends into madness. The soaring arias and tender duets will transport you through the emotional spectrum, from the tender moments of blossoming love to the heart-wrenching despair as Lucia confronts the devastating consequences of her choices, leading to the opera’s tragic conclusion.

The  principle cast features brand new faces to Pensacola Opera, alongside a few of our own Jan Miller Studio Artists and accompanied by members of the Pensacola Symphony Orchestra. Lucia di Lammermoor is a perfect combination of vocal artistry and dramatic storytelling that will leave you captivated by the raw power of the human voice.
