The unstoppable force known as Pacific Opera Project slams headlong into an immovable object — the tragic Italian opera Lucia di Lammermoor. The merry pranksters at POP are well known for their irreverent makeovers of classic operas, such as relocating Gaetano Donizetti's farcical The Elixir of Love to a 1950s American soda shop or reinventing W.A. Mozart's The Abduction From the Seraglio as a Star Trek fantasy. But Donizetti's morbid portrayal of the betrayed, insanely homicidal Scottish bride in Lucia is anything but lighthearted, and sopranos Jamie Chamberlin and Bevin Hill will alternate in the scarifying, vocally challenging title role while trying to remain poised amid POP's usual madcap antics. The spectacular outdoor setting atop a hill in Glendale's Forest Lawn cemetery adds to the macabre spirit.
