Afternoon at the Opera

Lucrezia Borgia

Lucrezia Borgia performed at the Cararmoor Festival

From the Caramoor website

Set during the Renaissance in Venice and Ferrara, Victor Hugo’s play is full of sensuality and decadence – jealousy, espionage, betrayal and poison. Even more than Lucia di Lammermoor, Lucrezia Borgia is Donizetti’s great bel canto masterpiece. Vocal fireworks illumine this grand, dark-hued melodrama.
