Donizetti's masterpiece in French...
9 October 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As a huge fan of Lucia Di Lammermoor, I was all for seeking for productions of this opera. This 2002 production in French is excellent in my opinion. Anybody expecting the Lucia we are more familiar with and know and love will be warned.

Alicia is removed, and replaced by Gilbert, seemingly sympathetic but very treacherous too(I couldn't help but think of Otello's Iago at some point). There are several musical changes, especially the Mad scene which is a little more dramatically involving here.

Still this production is very engrossing. The costumes and sets fit the sombre, tragic tone of the opera perfectly, and I loved how the camera work and lighting focused on individual performers rather than elsewhere. The music is amazing, and conducted and played to perfection.

The performances are wonderful too. Roberto Alagna is an ideal Edgard, very ardent and vocally this is one of his more sensitive performances. Patrizia Ciofi is wholly believable as Lucie, particularly in the Mad scene. Ludovic Tezier is suitably unscrupulous and powerful as Henry too.

In support, Yves Salens really stands out as Gilbert, very good voice and he brings out his character's traits perfectly. Marc Laho is convincing enough as Arthur if a tad too light in voice, considering how heavy some of the drama is.

All in all, an operatic masterpiece performed very well. 9/10 Bethany Cox
