“The Elixir of Adore” is a single of opera’s most profitable comedies, a appreciate tale sweetened by passionate singing, intoxicating melodies, and a “magic” potion. Poor Nemorino is in love with the rich Adina, but she only has eyes for the putting Sgt. Belcore.

“The Elixir of Really like” is directed by Nicholas Provenzale, Director of Opera, and is done in Italian with English supertitles.
Audiences are inspired to view this effectiveness reside from the convenience and safety of their automobiles as the effectiveness unfolds on an outdoors phase. Audio will be sent by way of an FM radio signal and the effectiveness will also be projected on to a massive monitor.
Provenzale reported, “Due to the fact of the pandemic safety constraints, I knew that I needed a innovative alternative. A are living-stream effectiveness, inside with masks, was not fascinating to me or my pupils. As singers, we are compelled to carry out, and I want my college students to learn from a reside functionality working experience. Audiences have also been deprived of live arts activities for a extremely extensive time. I hope this generation brings the pleasure of tunes-making to each the college students and audiences from the encompassing group. I think The Elixir of Really like with its wonderful melodies, romance and comedy, is just the treatment for all.”
