Apocalyptic rain and all, 300+ of you showed up to celebrate National Opera’s new production “Lucia Di Lammermoor” (@ Kennedy Center, November 10-19) at at the awesome new Black Jack Bar on 14th St!

Red drinks flowed like water, Cale kept the dance party going with some not-too-scary dance hits and everyone seemed to have a great time. But, you’re here for the photos (and the drama) so, we’ll let you enjoy those:

What’s a girl to do when her brother hates her boyfriend and makes her marry someone else for money? Don’t know about you, but young Lucia doesn’t take it too well. In Donizetti’s razor-sharp operatic thriller, the results are…shall we say, bloody madness.

Washington National Opera presents Lucia di Lammermoor, November 10–19 in the Kennedy Center Opera House. Acclaimed director David Alden’s dark and compelling production “turns Donizetti’s most popular work into an examination of Victorian psychopathology, and the results are often extreme” (The Guardian). Featuring two dazzling casts and conducted by WNO Music Director Philippe Auguin, you won’t want to miss this blood-splattered operatic thriller that seems like “a novel that Emily Brontë or the young Charles Dickens should have written” (The Daily Telegraph).

“Haunted, dreamlike…suppressed desires are matched by explosive hatred”
The Daily Telegraph
