Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor is the iconic bel canto opera, with its brilliant melodies, tempestuous passions, and murderous deeds – not to mention the most celebrated mad scene in all of opera.

An American officer marries and abandons a young geisha, but does not foresee the formidable strength of her love and sense of honour. Puccini's lush score and soaring melodies have made Madama Butterfly one of the most popular operas of all time.
