The latest opera to be screened at The Arts Station will tell a heartbreaking tale of unrequited love and ensuing madness. Fernie Friends of Opera will host Lucia di Lammermoor by Donizetti tomorrow night.

The classic story revolves around the love between Lucia and Edgardo, a family rival of Enrico of Lammermoor, who would have Lucia marry Arturo for money and power. Enrico’s meddling leaves Lucia heartbroken, believing Edgardo no longer loves her. Killing Arturo, after the marriage, she becomes mad and dies, leading Edgardo to kill himself in desperation.

The dramatic opera is close to two and a half hours and is in Italian with English subtitles.

Lucia di Lammermoor will play at The Arts Station at 7 p.m. on Friday.
