Victor Hugo’s 1830s play has the eponymous anti-heroine seeking to escape from the evil that is her condition and failing. Gennaro, the child she had with her brother, inadvertently falls in love with her at a masked ball; stung by the insults of Gennaro’s friends and suspected of adultery by her husband, Lucrezia opts for revenge … “Lucrezia is a moral monster,” says the PR blurb, “but this monster is a loving mother”.
