Lucia di Lammermoor - Covent Garden

There were some truly superb singers in this production, and it was fantastic to have the notsoaptlynamed ‘mad’ scene accompanied by a ‘glass harmonica’ - a truly haunting instrument. It was also the only time that I’ve stepped onto a stage as part of a creative team, only to be ‘booed’ by half the audience! At the time (and still) I found it a very entertaining situation to be in, as well as a great example of the way that much of the opera audience is very conservative and stuck in their ways.
