Gaetano Donizetti’s masterpiece opera “L’Elisir d’Amore” tells a story of love and anguish with playful wit and endless charms. The story follows the protagonist Nemorino as he hears of a love potion and sets out in his attempt to woo Adina, the most beautiful woman in the village. The score cleverly conveys the character’s personalities with fantastic musical moments throughout, while the production by Cesare Lievi utilizes giant props to complement the quirky ensemble. The cast includes Saimir Pirgu as Nemorino, Lucrezia Drei as Adina, and Renato Girolami as Dr. Dulcamara, and the opera is conducted by Guillermo García Calvo.
