Truly “classic” art is that which endures the ages and speaks to the hearts of all who come in contact with it. Donizetti’s light-hearted comic opera, L’elisir d’amore (The Elixir of Love), makes that list – as evidenced by the myriad settings and time periods in which it has been presented. Elixir tells the story of a young, poor man [Nemorino] who tries to win the heart of a beautiful wealthy woman [Adina]. Add to the mix a blustering self-absorbed officer [Belcore] and a travelling quack doctor [Dr. Dulcamara] who claims to sell potions that cure everything from psoriasis and old age to diabetes and – well, you name it! – and you have the principal cast of one of the most beloved and melodic operas ever written.
