Despite ominous premonitions, young Lucia stokes the fire of a forbidden love with her brother's greatest political enemy. But with her one-wealthy family balanced on the brink of bankruptcy, she is forced to do her familial duty and marry the head of a rival family. Convinced by her ambition brother that her true love has been unfaithful, she signs the marriage contract. When her former flame finds out, he flips out. And that's when the wedding cake hits the finials.
With tragedy rivaling Romeo and Juliet, and violence reminiscent of Psycho, a day that began with a wedding march now ends with a funeral procession. And a little club soda will NOT get this out.
Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket to enter the theater.
