Donizetti's tragic three-act opera portrays one of the canon's most haunting descents into anguished madness as a young woman is forced to marry that she simply does not love. Based loosely on Sir Walter Scott's moving novel The Bride of Lammermoor, this celebrated opera is a dark look into the abyss of madness and unrequited love.
