About the show: No operatic hero is more endearing than Nemorino, who pines for the charming Adina. She’s the beautiful landowner of a farm in an Italian village, he’s a delightfully naive peasant. His only hope to win her is the “magic elixir” sold by the zany, Dr. Dulcamara — little does he know that it’s just Bordeaux wine! From start to finish we root for Nemorino, as Adina toys with him until she finally lets him know how she really feels. Elixir is opera’s most heartwarming comedy, filled with Donizetti’s delectable music that brings nonstop smiles.
