Maria Callas – “Ancor non giunse … Regnava nel silenzio … Quando rapito in estasi” Scena e Cavatina of Lucia – “Lucia di Lammermoor” (1835) Act I Scene IV – Gaetano Donizetti (1797 – 1848).
With Anna Maria Canali as Alisa.

“Lucia di Lammermoor is a dramma tragico (tragic opera) in three acts by Gaetano Donizetti. Salvadore Cammarano wrote the Italian language libretto loosely based upon Sir Walter Scott’s historical novel The Bride of 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.”
