Soprano Jessica Pratt and tenor Michael Fabiano are the undoubted stars of Opera Australia’s current production of Donizetti’s  bel canto masterpiece Lucia di Lammermoor. Along with a strong supporting cast, the Opera Australia Chorus and the Opera Australia Orchestra, audiences and critics have been both moved and amazed by the stellar  musical and dramatic performances. Conducted by Carlo Montanaro, the John Doyle production, revived by Roger Press, runs in the Joan Sutherland Theatre of the Sydney Opera House on selected evenings until July 27. These are performances that are not to be missed.
