'Lucia' in the Madhouse

GIUSEPPE PENNISI attends
a memorial to Luca Ronconi

 

Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor is one of the world's most often performed operas. The reader may peruse the large number of reviews in this magazine. Since 1835, the opera has never left the repertory of major as well as minor theatres. So why present a new production in Rome on 31 March 2015 as a 'gala evening' with the Head of State, the Minister of Economy and Finance, the Mayor and many other authorities as well as general audience (like me) filling the stalls, the boxes and the circles?..
