The story tells the story of Lucia of Larmmermoor that falls in love with Edgar of Ravenswood, whose family has always been his rival. Edgardo is forced to leave to defend Scotland and as a symbol of their love he exchanges rings with Lucia.
During this period of absence, Lord Enrico Ashton makes his sister believe that Edgardo has betrayed her with a new love, then forcing Lucia to marry. Arturo Bucklaw. Edgardo returns and deeply embittered he returns the ring to Lucia, who completely devoid of sense kills Arturo.
