Lucia di Lammermoor
(Lucia of Lammermoor)
Donizetti’s beloved tragedy Lucia di Lammermoor receives a fully staged production in The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center’s intimate Kay Theatre in College Park. The legendary Nick Olcott directs the production and Maryland Lyric Opera Music Director Louis Salemno conducts the MDLO Orchestra.
Maeve Höglund, a rising American soprano who is making her mark at regional opera companies across the country and joins the MDLO Young Artist Institute this summer, sings the iconic title role at the Thursday and Saturday performances. Joining her are three alumni of the MDLO Young Artist Institute and the Washington National Opera’s Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Program: baritone Javier Arrey as Enrico, tenor Yi Li as Edgardo, and bass Wei Wu as Raimondo.
For the Friday performance, rising South Korean soprano Nayoung Ban sings the title role, following her training in the MDLO Young Artist Institute. Singing alongside her are baritone SeungHyeon Baek, tenor Yongxi Chen, and bass Hunter Enoch. Tenor Antonio Chase is Arturo at all performances.
A full production creative team will be announced in the coming months.
