Lucia di Lammermoor

While we were in Denton, we went to see UNT’s production of Lucia di Lammermoor. This was Kathy’s first Opera experience, so I was delighted when we got to the box office and plunked down our money for the cheapest seats remaining, we somehow ended up in the third row.

UNT’s crew did a fine job with the show. Though the acting seemed a bit aimless at times, the orchestra and singers were top-notch. The woman playing Lucia was especially noteworthy, jumping around in coloratura range wonderfully nimbly, and evidently very much enjoying the chance to play a character afflicted by madness. It was a bit odd to see a bunch of people running around in kilts singing in Italian, though.

Thanks for the great evening, UNT folks!
