L’elisir d’amore (The Elixir of Love), by Gaetano Donizetti, is one of the sunniest comic operas ever to be written. It is the story of a simple farmhand who falls in love with the farm owner’s rich and haughty daughter. He is so much in love that he gives up everything to buy a magic “love potion” from a traveling salesman that’s really just a bottle of red wine. After many comic twists and turns, true love finally wins in the end. It’s the perfect way to start our 2019-20 season.
