Cape Town Opera, celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, will present Gaetano Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor at Artscape from 14 to 23 June 2024.

Directed by industry legend and Cape Town Opera’s co-founder and Honorary Patron Angelo Gobbato, and with Kamal Khan conducting the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra, Lucia di Lammermoor is poised to enthrall both seasoned opera enthusiasts and newcomers. With its timeless tale of love, betrayal and madness, the opera remains as relevant today as it was when it first premiered in 1835. From the soaring melodies of the famous Mad Scene to the intricate ensemble numbers, Lucia di Lammermoor is filled with raw emotion and musical brilliance, a true testament to Donizetti’s genius and to the enduring power of this thrilling art form.
