Favorite Opera Scenes (Cont.)

Today we are presenting the lovely sextet "Chi mi frena in tal tormento" from Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor. The story concerns the emotionally fragile Lucy Ashton (Lucia) who is caught in a feud between her own family and that of the Ravenswoods. The setting is the Lammermuir Hills of Scotland (Lammermoor) in the 17th Century. Of particular note is Jose Carreras as Egardo di Ravenswood.  Jose is one of The Three Tenors that were, Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo and Carreras. Please enjoy.

Fans of The Three Stooges may remember the boys doing this sextet (-3) in one of their short films.
