Canterbury Opera, Canterbury, New Zealand

The photographs are by Jane Wyles.

Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor was produced by Canterbury Opera at Canterbury, New Zealand, July 20-29, 2006.  The show, which was not without incident when it seemed that the soprano might not be able to complete a performance, seems to have been generally well regarded.  However, unfortunately, financial problems have caused Canterbury Opera to suspend its next production.

The cast included:-

Lucia  - Amanda Pabyan

Edgardo - Angus Wood

Enrico - José Carbó

Raimondo  -  Adam Flaherty

The Canterbury Opera Chorus and Christchurch Symphony Orchestra were conducted by Brian Castles-Onion. Direction was by Nigel Warrington.
