Katie Mitchell, director
The 2016 Royal Opera House staging of Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor, directed by Katie Mitchell, is scheduled for release in October on Amazon.
Damrau doesn’t do fragile, and fortunately Mitchell doesn’t ask it of her. Instead we get a Lucia who is as vocally assertive as she is sexually, a rational woman momentarily maddened by shock and grief into fantasies that make for a psychologically compelling mad scene.
