DVOC Presents: Donizetti's L'Etisin d'amore

L'Elisir d'Amore by Gaetano Donizetti is one of the most beloved pieces in the opera repertoire. The story takes place in a small country town, where shy country boy Nemorino is head-over-heels in love with Adina, a spirited flirt who likes his attentions but rebuffs him at every turn. When she catches the eye of a soldier, she takes every opportunity to flaunt her new love interest in front of Nemorino. The poor boy is crushed until a traveling salesman wanders through town promising cures for any ailment. He even has a magical elixir that promises to make the drinker irresistible, even to the hardest of hearts. Nemorino has nothing to lose…
