Tacoma Opera Presents: Lucia di Lammermoor

Opera

Tacoma Opera Presents: Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti. Oct 26 Preview Performance at the Theater on the Square in Tacoma. Oct 28 at the Theater on the Square in Tacoma. 901 Broadway Avenue, Tacoma, WA 98402. Nov 2 and 4 at the Performing Arts Center in Federal Way. 31510 Pete von Reichbauer Way South, Federal Way, WA 98003. The perfect opera for the Halloween season. In the foggy atmosphere of Medieval Scotland, the pure and passionate love between Lucia and Edgardo emerges. After being torn from her true love, Lucia is forced to marry someone else for political reasons. Betrayed, hurt, and stripped of her reason for living, she loses her mind in the famous "mad scene", which is the climax of the opera; a bloody, graphic ritual wrapped in heavenly “bel canto” music.
