Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor

Get swept away to the dramatic Scottish landscape in the new Houston Grand Opera production of Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor. A story of love, power and betrayal, the opera centers on Enrico (sung by Scott Hendricks), who is ruthlessly trying to force his sister Lucia (Albina Shagimuratova) to marry a man she doesn’t love. The situation is complicated by Lucia’s love for Edgardo (Dimitri Pittas), who has already suffered greatly at the hands of Enrico.

The Lucia creative team is impressive. Shagimuratova carries the weight of the intense story gracefully with a lyrical voice that Opera Today has called clear, full and capable of spinning line after line of legato. Tony Award-winning John Doyle directs (he directed Sweeney Todd on Broadway in 2006). Also on board is Italian conductor Antonio Fogliani, who’s making his HGO debut here. 7:30 p.m. January 28, February 5, 9 and 11; 2:30 p.m. January 30. Wortham Theatre Center, 501 Texas. For information, call 713-228-6737 or visit $30 to $313.
Fri., Jan. 28, 7:30 p.m.; Sun., Jan. 30, 2:30 p.m.; Sat., Feb. 5, 7:30 p.m.; Wed., Feb. 9, 7:30 p.m.; Fri., Feb. 11, 7:30 p.m., 2011
