ENGLEWOOD, N.J. -- The Verismo Opera will perform Gaetano Donizetti's immortal opera, "Lucia di Lammermoor," on Sunday, Oct. 18 at 3 p.m. at the Bergen Performing Arts Center.
The cast will include Hea Ran Kim, Hyong Sik Jo and Youngjoo An.
Tenor Giovanni Simone of Fort Lee will perform the principal role Normanno. Simone, co-founder of Verismo Opera, has performed in over 57 productions of Lucia di Lammermoor singing the roles of Normanno and Arturo.
"Lucia di Lammermoor, the jewel of Donizetti's compositions, is a joy to see and hear with gorgeous costumes and beautiful melodies," Artistic Director Lucine Amara said in a statement. "This is intense emotion with the elegance of the 'bel canto' style. Stage Director Evelyn La Quaif always brings Lucia to life with real people, not just characters from a novel. Don't take your eyes off the stage."
