Lucia di Lammermoor — Opera Theatre, Sydney
It’s Charles and Diana all over again, really. Lucia’s self-seeking brother Enrico (which is a funny first name for a Scot, you’d have to say) has a hubby lined-up for his sis and he won’t take no for an answer. His fiefdom’s short of a quid (maybe he has Charles as a brother and he’s been overspending again), so he has Arturo firmly in his sights as a brother-in-law and saviour. Meanwhile, Lucia’s taken a shine to Edgardo, who’s rescued her from a wild bull attack.
