Gioachino Rossini’s La Donna del Lago

Based on Sir Walter Scott’s narrative poem The Lady of the Lake, Rossini’s 1819 opera was the first to adapt one of the Scottish writer’s works for the musical stage (followed most prominently by Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor some 15 years later). The opera’s fictional love story is set against the background of the conflict between King James V of Scotland and the country’s highland clans in the 16th century. La Donna del Lago has its Met premiere in the 2014–15 season.
