Notes & Reviews:
Anna Netrebko returns to the stage in the unforgettable performance of Donizetti's Lucia Di Lammermoor! This DVD release was originally broadcast live in HD from The Met on February 7, 2009. In addition to Netrebko's spectacular performance, Mariusz Kwiecien's Enrico delivers theatrical truth with a matchless baritone with the luster of polished mahogany. This Met performance of director Mary Zimmerman's "imaginative staging... and nuanced portrayals" (Times) is a tour de force of music and theatricality.
BBC Music Magazine
Director Mary Zimmerman's... offers a Victorian gloss on the drama... which adds a fresh and fascinating resonance. This is reinforced by the filming, often steeply angled from front stage, and enjoys uncommonly strong choral and orchestral support.
