The Elixir of Love (Thursday evening)

Thursday, February 2, 2017 | 7:00 pm


Eric Jacobsen, conductor | Mary Birnbaum, stage director

Celebrate an early Valentine’s Day with Gaetano Donizetti’s romantic comedy L’elisir d’amore. The hopeless romantic Nemorino purchases a love potion from a traveling salesman to get the brilliant Adina to fall in love with him before she marries the soldier Belcore.  Will the potion work?  Does true love conquer all?  Bring your sweetheart and find out!

Director Mary Birnbaum will stage this production to bring Donizetti’s sparkling comedy to life.  The Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, under the direction of Music Director Eric Jacobsen, will join the singers on stage in this surprising concert version of L’elisir d’amore, specially designed for The Plaza Live stage.

Sung in Italian with English supertitles
