works from "Madame Bovery" to
Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina." Donizetti's
main opus has a tendency to be eclipsed
by the prodigious output of his contem-
The story-libretto takes place in
Scotland about the year 1700 and con-
tains the standard elements of a
historical novel as well as Gothic
romance. There are ghosts, evil
prophesies fulfilled, forged letters, and
- of course - a classic mad scene. The
star-crossed lovers embrace a destiny
in which communion is reached only
through death and transfiguration.
"Verranno a te sull'aure" has become a
model duet for lovers parting.
Edita Gruberova's performance is
restrained and doesn't quite convey the
loneliness or the great staying power of
the human heart. As a result, the later
mad scene isn't as convincing as it
might be. Yet Edgardo's death as sung
by Alfredo Kraus contains the full sub-
text of violent emotion - the passionate
stillness as well as the Nietzscherian
amor fati. The mellifluous melodies
swell just enough toaccent the-pathos
of Edgardo's destiny. He longs for
death with a sweeping fervor because
he believes he will finally be united in
peace with Lucia.
Other highlights include the choral
epilogue to Raimondo's "Dalle stanze
ove Lucia" wherein the Ambrosian
Opera Chorus demonstrates an ability
to turn a well-known phrase with a
bright, new inflection.
