Synopsis

  • Acte I

    Scotland, in the late 17th century, a castle on the foggy moors. Enrico wants to give his sister Lucia in marriage to Arturo, a union that could restore his family’s precarious financial situation. But Lucia is in love with her brother’s sworn enemy, Edgardo, with whom she has exchanged an oath of eternal love. Enrico pressures his sister, who ends up giving in. But in the middle of the wedding celebration, Edgardo suddenly appears, accusing Lucia of having betrayed him. Having gone mad, Lucia kills Arturo on their wedding night before dying in despair. Edgardo cannot live without her and, in anguish, stabs himself on his ancestors’ tomb.
