Lucia di Lammermoor is a tragic story that serves as a protest against the practice of forced marriage. Lucia is a beautiful young woman deeply in love with a young man from a family hated by her villainous brother. Her brother forces her into a political marriage for his own benefit, using deceit, lies, and forgery. Although the tale ends in tragedy for everyone, Donizetti's music is among the most glorious in opera.
