The cast was amazing and the orchestra superb with Donetti's amazing music. I definitely prefer the Scottish presentation though. I guess I'm just not into the modern version.

Still getting used to the venue change from Scotland to the American mid west.

Wonderful music and singing but the background and staging was a bit distracting. Not sure I "bought" the transposition of this 19th century music to 21st century Detroit!!

Having seen versions of Shakespeare plays on stage brought up to 20th and 21st century, I have become somewhat accustomed to these transitions to more modern settings. As such, I enjoyed the 'Rust Belt' setting of Lucia. The bell canto music and singers, as one might expect, could be different but could not likely be improved upon. Experiencing the complex staging was a treat and should be commended for design, engineering, and execution. Only the Met could have undertaken such a huge task.
