THE ELIXIR OF LOVE

Music by Gaetano Donizetti

Original libretto by Felice Romani  / English translation by Ruth and Thomas Martin

Performed through arrangement with G. Schirmer

Simple yet fervent country bumpkin Nemorino is hopelessly in love with Adina, an independent and attractive yet fickle land-owner. With the dashing Sergeant Belcore also competing for Adina’s affections, Nemorino turns in desperation to traveling con man Doctor Dulcamara and his “elixir of love” (really a bottle of cheap wine).  Dulcamara’s faux love potion causes a domino effect of hilarious plot twists and surprise romantic turns in composer Gaetano Donizetti’s operatic masterpiece of beguiling arias and intoxicating duets.
