Family comes first.

Opera Seria presents a fully staged performance of Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor. Juan Ortuno joins Opera Seria to conduct this tragedy of family rivalries, doomed love and murder set among the 1960's Mafia (think Mad Men meets the Godfather).

Lucia di Lammermoor is being supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
