This is an outstanding production of Donizetti's masterpiece. On the vast La Scala stage, the huge sets give exactly the right feeling of brooding monumental intensity to this most melodramatic of grand operas. The chorus fill the stage nonetheless with spectacular costumes and entertaining crowd scenes - genuinely believable, which is something of a feat in grand opera. All the principals are excellent, but the star is undoubtedly Mariella Devia as Lucia. She is brilliant throughout but it is in the Mad Scene that her sheer quality is most clearly apparent. She carries off this fiendishly difficult scene beautifully. She makes it absolutely believable and her singing is sensational. She has such a purity of vocal line, which she maintains throughout this long and technically demanding scene that she makes it into a thing of beauty as well as the truly dramatic episode which it should be. The whole opera revolves around this moment and here it is presented in the most ideal way that I could imagine. It crowns what is altogether a truly magnificent production. The DVD is available at a very modest price but is also included in the 11 opera set from La Scala, where its unit price is even cheaper. That collection contains many more excellent La Scala productions and is worth considering if you wish to acquire this excellent opera production in the company of several others at a very reasonable price.

Please ignore the bizarre comment that has been left here. This DVD is most certainly in colour.

I started out as usual sketching my thoughts as I watched and listened and found that I was becoming repetative, and why? because all the singers were so good.
Usually I can single out one or two artistes that stand out, but everyone is perfectly matched by voice and acting ability to there role.
So what can you expect, Mariella Devia has a wonderful coloratura, and her notes at the top of her range are pure and sweet. Bruson shifts his voice from the peruasive to bullying to agressive as required. Sovilla has a mellow mezzo, but is clear in the upper range, Berti is impassioned and tender, the mellow Colombara now persuasive, now pacifying, now sad. Last but by no means least La Scola moves his voice effortlessly through his moods.
The costumes are all one could expect for the period, the sets fairly simple but appropriate.
The orchestra is bright and clean, the upper strings particularly crisp and clear.
The mad scene and Edgardo death scenes are particularly emotive, no gimmicks, just good sensitive singing and acting.
The booklet, besides the credits that one would expect, also gives a synopsis of each act, and the libretto.
This is a head and shoulders production against any other Lucia I have seen or heard and that includes Joan Sutherland!.

This La Scala recording from 1992 shows what superb singers could then be gathered for this famous bel-canto opera. The four principals (soprano, tenor, baritone and bass) are quite outstanding, and even the comprimario role of Bucklaw is sung by a tenor distinctly above average. The production is conventional and all the better for it, being, thankfully, remote from any crazed "Konzept" emanating from the fevered brain of a German producer. Instead it has plenty of atmosphere and beauty; and in this respect staging and music go hand in hand, as they so rarely do these days. The picture is sharp with true colours and the sound is very good.

When purchasing it gives the date of recording as 2004. It is actually an old VHS tape recording mastered on to a DVD in 2004. The quality was poor, the visuals dark and the sound flat. I feel it should be stated that this is a VHS tape upfront.

No one could claim that Lucia is a bright opera--there are no light passages at all.

However almost total darkness is surely unnecessary, and the orchestra almost succeeds in drowning out the voices. The orchestra is there not to make a greater noise than the singers, but to complement the voice.

I thought that Renato Bruson, as Enrico, very powerful to look at, but without any natural movement on the stage, and although he has a powerful voice, it has very little musical quality. The same applied to Vincenzo La Scola as Edgardo, and in fact most of the cast were very awkward looking in their movements.

I was disappointed with this production partly that I found it far too dark, and when the chorus was on stage, very crowded , but mostly the fact that the orchestra really was too loud, and prevented the singers being heard clearly.

This is only my opinion, but I would not recommend this DVD, if you do not know the opera
