Read more about the opera Lucia di Lammermoor

Opera on a Shoestring were a Glasgow-based company, which, as the name suggests, mounted operas with reduced musical resources and a minimum of scenery. Here, the score was tactfully thinned by Edward Rushton to suit a band of eight. The natural ambience of the auditorium, a former church in the gothic revival style, was also used to great advantage.
