THEME: Gaetano Donizetti’s “Elixir of Love” (L’elisir d’amore)

An Italian comic opera penned in the 1830’s by famed composer Gaetano Donizetti. One of opera’s most popular romantic comedies, The Elixir of Love tells the story of a love triangle involving a lovable and simple country peasant, Nemorino, a dashing but vain sergeant, Belcore, and the enchanting town flirt, Adina. It takes place in a bucolic agricultural valley where the county folk make wine and grow fruit. Throw in a “magical” love potion and a traveling huckster, “Doctor” Dulcamara, and you have a light-hearted, feel-good story with plenty of laughs. The Elixir of Love features beautiful Italian melodies and plenty of bel canto vocal fireworks. It also includes the wonderful tenor aria, “Una furtive lagrima,” one of the most famous arias in all of opera.
