More of the MainStage events for LUCIA

Steinmetz Hall will transform into the North Country for Opera Orlando’s 2023-24 All for Art MainStage production of Lucia di Lammermoor, April 19 at 7:30 p.m. and April 21 at 2 p.m. Tickets are on sale now, but the Opera is providing a variety of opportunities to get to know more about this original production — set in the world of Westeros — and its phenomenal cast, starring soprano Marnie Breckenridge as Lucia, tenor Ben Gulley as her lover Edgardo, and Grammy Award-winning baritone Gabriel Preisser as her scheming brother Enrico.


“It is always great to share the excitement around our upcoming productions with our audiences and fans,” shared artist director Grant Preisser. “Our More of the MainStage event series always has something enticing for everyone: from opera newcomers to opera aficionados. Plus it is a great way to socialize and connect with other opera fans throughout Central Florida before seeing and hearing it all come together on stage at Steinmetz Hall.”
