About the Event
The Deutsche Oper Berlin presents Gaetano Donizetti's 'Lucia di Lammermoor' in a production by Filippo Sanjust.
'Lucia di Lammermoor' is set in Scotland during the violent clan wars. In the male‐dominated society, sisters and daughters are used as pawns to secure military alliances. The same fate awaits Lucia, who seeks haven in the midst of madness. She has already pledged herself in love and marriage to Edgardo, the mortal enemy of her brother Enrico. Enrico wants to see his sister wedded to the family's powerful ally, Arturo. Filippo Sanjust's production and costumes are an homage to the traditions of romantic set design.

Deutsche Oper Berlin
Deutsche Oper Berlin is the biggest opera house in the German capital, and a member of the Berlin Opera Foundation established in the early 1900s. The original building was destroyed during the Second World War, but was eventually replaced, and the new theater opened in 1961 - six weeks after construction began on the Berlin Wall. Serving West Berlin, its sober, linear design avoids anything that might distract vistiors from the performance. The repertoire of the theater focuses on the great classics such as Mozart, Verdi and Strauss, but frequently presents contemporary opera as well. The Chorus of the Deutsche Oper has been named 'Chorus of the Year' many times for its outstanding performances.
