Marissa B + Seattle Opera

Lucia di Lammermoor at the Seattle Opera was awesome! It was dramatic and beautiful and disturbing. The costumes were perfect 19th century. The lighting was so evocative of the mood of each particular scene, going from warm gold tones to gray-blue suddenly at one pivotal point of madness and despair. I think I expected stiffer performances, but the acting was superb, very emotional and involving. Go just for the spectacle and excitement, if not for the absolutely wonderful music! Seeing all these people in spectacular costume, on all the different levels of an imaginative castle set, singing for all they're worth-- it really is an experience. And it's not all gloom and doom, if I gave that impression. There's some unexpected comedy. It's only playing for a couple more days, so go so it now!
