“L'elisir d'amore” is one of the most frequently performed of all Donizetti’s operas. It combines a touching love story and hilarious comedy with beautiful music, including the much-loved aria "Una furtiva lagrima." The opera’s premiere in Milan in 1832 was a triumph and secured Donizetti’s place as one of the leading Italian opera composers of his day. This opera is appropriate for all ages.
Music composed by Gaetano Donizetti; libretto by Felice Romani; sung in Italian with English supertitles; stage direction by Dale Dreyfoos; music direction by Brian DeMaris; choreography by Lynette Kidman.
