Photographs from the Teatro Municipal's production of Donizetti's Lucrezia Borgia. More photographs can be seen here.  The alternative cast can be seen in a number of pieces from the opera.  Go to http://www.youtube.com and type " lucrezia borgia lemercier " into the search box.

Orlando Alvarez Hernandez in October's issue of Opera Magazine (p.1228)  called the production stunning and commented enthusiastically on all the principals' performances.  

One curiosity pointed out by Johnny Teperman on Mundoclasico.com is that certain tunes in the opera remind one of both the Chilean and Uruguayan national anthems perhaps because their composers, Ramón Carnicer and Fernando Quijano, were admirers of Donizetti.
