A feast for the eyes and ears, the 2010 Green Mountain Opera Festival will feature international soloists, festival orchestra and chorus.

BRIEF SYNOPSIS
A story of love, honour and deceipt. Enrico is outraged to find his sister Lucia is in love with his mortal enemy Edgardo. Lucia and Edgardo pledge their eternal love. To restore the family name and fortune, Enrico tricks Lucia into believing Edgardo is unfaithful to her so he can arrange a marriage between his sister and Arturo. Edgardo finds out about the marriage and disrupts the wedding by cursing Lucia.

Enrico confronts Edgardo and challenges him to a duel. During the wedding festivities, the priest Raimondo enters to announce that Lucia has gone mad and has killed Arturo. This is the most famous soprano mad scene in the entire operatic repertoire.

When Edgardo finds out Lucia has died he is resolved to meet her in heaven and stabs himself to death.
