  • Filmed at La Scala in Milan, this is a faithful rendition of Gaetano Donizetti's three act opera, and is conducted by the acclaimed Stefano Ranzani. The tragic tale of love in wartime sees Edgardo of Ravenswood (Vincenzo La Scola) planning to marry the sister (Mariella Devia) of his bitter rival, Lord Enrico Ashton of Lammermoor (Renato Brusson). Ashton resorts to some devious tactics in an attempt to separate the two lovers, notably forging a letter from Edgardo stating that he has found another woman. This paves the way for Ranzani to marry off his sister to Lord Bucklaw, an arrangement which is thrown into turmoil when Edgardo returns from battle and challenges Bucklaw to a duel. Further twists and turns in the plot ensue when Edgardo witnesses the marriage contract between Bucklaw and his former lover, leading to a highly dramatic end to the sad story.

    Shot in 1992, this is a wonderfully staged production of Donizettio's work. Powerful and moving in equal measures, Ranzani's masterful conducting holds together an often complex storyline, and draws some remarkable performances from the leads. The audience appears enraptured by the proceedings throughout, which is a fine testament to this hugely enjoyable production.
