L’ELISIR D’AMORE – Royal Opera House

NR  |  2 hours 45 minutes

A heart-warming opera celebrating wine, good humor, and Italian sunshine, Donizetti’s L’ELISIR D’AMORE shines brilliantly with Laurent Pelly’s hilarious staging for the Royal Opera House. Featuring an all-star cast including Vittorio Grigolo, Lucy Crowe, and Bryn Terfel, this romantic comedy follows the story of Nemorino, who admires the sophisticated Adina from afar but faces competition from the braggart Sergeant Belcore. A love potion from travelling quack Dr. Dulcamara gives Nemorino a powerful dose of courage, with both comic and touching results.
