Lucia di Lammermoor 2012

Date: 6-8 January 2012 (Fri-Sun)
Time: 7:45pm on 6 & 7 Jan; 2:45pm on 7 & 8 Jan
Venue: Concert Hall, Hong Kong City Hall
Presented by LCSD, Donizetti's romantic opera Lucia di Lammermoor is set in the Lammermuir Hills (Lammermoor) of Scotland in the 17th century and tells the story of the emotionally fragile Lucy Ashton (Lucia), caught in a family feud between her own family and the Ravenswoods that ultimately leads to tragedy.

Lucia's "Mad Scene", "Il dolce suono... Spargi d'amaro pianto", a technically and expressively demanding piece, has historically been a vehicle to lift the careers of many a coloratura sopranos to stardom, and together with other popular arias such as "Regnava Nel Silenzio" and "Verranno a te sull'aure", has made Lucia di Lammermoor one of the most performed operas of all time.

The Society has since fulfilled its mission to actively promote western opera and vocal music in the community in Hong Kong, while maintaining an outstanding standard of performance. With the vision of keeping abreast with world-renowned choruses, the Chorus strives to attain a professional standard. Since its establishment, the Chorus has performed over 20 operas and a rich choral repertoire. The Chorus made its highly successful debut in the Mainland in 1999 and was invited by the Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra to join their Millennium Concerts in Dongguan and Guangzhou. The Chorus has also worked with famous orchestras such as the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields and the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2005, 2006 and 2008, the Chorus was invited by the RTHK Radio 4 to participate in the Christmas Eve concerts and performed Handel?s Messiah, Vivaldi?s Gloria and A World Christmas. Recent performances including La Perichole in Le French May 2008, Musica Viva?s productions Madama Butterfly (2009), La Fille du Regiment (2010) and L?Elisir d?Amore (2011).
