Gaetano Donizetti: Lucia di Lammermoor (8/10)

The opera is a little over the top – well it is really over the top. And unlike other operas that are this over the top, I find not all that much of interest here.

That being said, it’s hard to ignore, so that is certainly something. And it is less deliberately populist than some French operas that are as popular to this day. Or at least it sounds that way to my untrained ears.
