Marriage Act

Not many an opera (that we know of, at least) is set in the high hills of Scotland, but Gaetano Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor takes the audience to the romanticized locale through the eyes of a love-stricken, unstable woman whose scheming brother arranges for her a marriage into an influential family. Based on Sir Walter Scott’s novel The Bride of Lammermoor, it’s easy to presume that things won’t end well -- in spite of the scenery.
