Details on the Performance

Rather, it is above all a political tale, which shows how a totalitarian system distorts human relationships at their very core and finally consumes them. The development and extinguishing of unrequited love has provided Donizetti with his most haunting music. Revenage is bloody; madness deadly. And the agony of emotions - according to the Director - “destroys everything and everyone.”

The Venue's History in few words …

The history of Munich's actual theatre truly only begins at the end of the eighteenth century. Indeed, after over a century of infatuation for Italian opera, which was manifest in the construction of the Théâtre de la Cour (now called the Théâtre Cuvilliês, still active), local inhabitants began to feel the need for a German lyrical art. German repertoire, as Mozart appealed for, active in Munich especially during the premiere of his IDOMENEO, but also, a German theatre, since the Theatre de la Cour was limited to Italian art. The Napoleonic wars and King Maximilien I's sudden passion for the Odéon Theatre in Paris postponed this project.

 

The public thus waited until 1818 to discover its « National Theatre, » a subtle and luxurious synthesis of various styles: loggias in the Italian tradition cohabited with innovations from the French school of architecture. One of the noveltieswas a reservoir of water destined to be used in case of fire, but which nevertheless did not save the buildîng from flames in January 1823 ; the water was frozen! The Opera was reconstructed, financed by a special tax on beer: perhaps an original means but one yielding a particularly high return! After these rather tumultuous beginnings, the National Theatre reopened in 1825 and became the hotbed of German lyrical art. Four of Wagner's operas were premiered there between 1365 and 1870 (TRISTAN UND ISOLDE, Da MEISTERSINGER, DAS RHEINGOLD, and DIE WALKÜRE).

 

Wagner, of course, but also Mozart and Richard Strauss soon became the pillars of the Theatre's repertoire during the first half of the twentieth century, thanks to the talent of conductors such as Bruno Walter, Hans Knappertsbusch, and... Richard Strauss, himself a native of Munich. Strauss saw two of his operas premiered in his home town: FRIEDENSTAG (Peace Day, 1938!), and CAPRICCIO (1942). The libretto of the latter was elaborated with the help of the conductor Clemens Krauss, who was then Director of the Opera. The fact that the building was destroyed during the war did not prevent the company's tradition from being perpetuated.

 

Between 1952 and 1967, the institution was directed by Rudolf Hartmann, a former assistant to Richard Strauss and Clemens Krauss. The former 1818 edifice was reconstructed in 1963, after much hesitation as to whether or not to erect a modern hall. The long reign (1971-1992) of conductor Wolfgang Sawallisch, a distinguished representative of the tradition composed of rigour and commitment, is an example of the perserverance with which the Bayerische Staatsoper comes to terms with the legacy of its brilliant past.

LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR AN ITALIAN TRAGEDY

This opera is a tragedy and consists of three acts. It was written in 1835 by Gaetano Donzietti at the height of his career and it became instantly popular. It was especially popular as it was written at a time when the history and the culture of Scotland was of popular interest within Europe.

Lucia di Lammermoor is set in a castle in Scotland in the late seventeenth century. It is about feud between two families and a love story between members of the feuding families. The opera premiered in 1835 in Naples at Teatro San Carlo. It was later first performed in the United Kingdom in 1838 in London. The opera is still performed widely today and is 21st on the list of the most performed operas in the world.

HISTORY

Act 1

Normanno is searching for intruders. He tells Enrico that he thinks the intruder is Edgardo come to meet Lucia. It is confirmed that the intruder is Edgardo, and this causes Enrico to declare his hatred for the Ravenswood family as well as his determination to end the relationship between Edgardo and Lucia.
Lucia is waiting for Edgardo. She tells her maid, Alisa, that she has seen the ghost of a girl who was killed by a member of the Ravenswood family. Alisa tells Lucia that it is a sign that she should end her relationship with Edgardo. Edgardo enters and declares that he has to leave for France immediately. He also states that he wishes to make peace with Enrico and marry Lucia. Lucia says it is impossible, and they secretly make marriage vows and exchange rings before Edgardo leaves.

Act 2

Preparations are made for Lucia to marry Arturo but Enrico worries that Lucia will not marry him. He fakes a letter supposedly from Edgardo stating that he no longer cares for Lucia. Arturo arrives for the wedding and he signs the marriage contract, followed reluctantly by Lucia. Edgardo appears, curses Lucia and stamps on his ring before being thrown out the castle.

Act 3

Enrico challenges Edgardo to a duel. They arrange to meet later by the graveyard. Raimondo interrupts the marriage celebrations to tell everyone that Lucia has killed her new husband Arturo. Lucia collapes. After hearing that Lucia has killed herself, Edgardo stabs himself with a dagger hoping to be united with her in heaven.
