The Elixir of Love is a melodramma giocoso (comic melodrama, opera buffa) in two acts by the Italian composer Gaetano Donizetti

Embark on a journey of love, laughter and enchantment, where every note weaves a spellbinding tale.

Rafael Luz Conductor




Donizetti’s bubbly romantic comedy about a spunky landowner, a hapless peasant, and the dubious love potion that may or may not bring them together never fails to delight audiences. Soprano Emily Rocha stars as Adina, imbuing her character with lovable warmth while tossing off effortless coloratura passages from beginning to end. Tenor David Walsh is Nemorino, Adina’s love-struck admirer, who pours out his heart in the moving aria “Una furtiva lagrima.” The cast also includes baritone Anthony Rodrigues as the swaggering Sergeant Belcore and Chad Quigley as the wily Dr. Dulcamara.

Our production will be semi-staged with full orchestra. Sung in the original Italian with English surtitles.
