Presented by Alcohol. Think Again

The charm of Donizetti’s classic The Elixir of Love (L’ elisir d’amore) is a deeper story about money, romance and true love.

Nemorino is in love with Adina but she won’t give him the time of day. After hearing the legend of Tristan and Isolde, Nemorino wonders if a love potion might help win her over. The arrival of Dr Dulcamara in town provides the perfect antidote, an elixir of love. But time is running out – Adina has agreed to marry the pompous Sergeant Belcore. Will the elixir work? Will Dulcamara get out of town before anyone discovers it doesn’t? Will Nemorino get his girl?

Featuring Aldo Di Toro as Nemorino and Rachelle Durkin as Adina
