Presenting the 2014 Festival Season Share

Main Performance
THE ELIXIR OF LOVE

This light-hearted comic gem is also filled with magical delights. Nemorino (sung by René Barbera, winner of Plácido Domingo’s Operalia world opera competition) is desperate to win the love of Adina — and thinks that a “love potion” from a traveling salesman can help. He’s prepared to wait for its magic to kick in, until he  discovers Adina has suddenly become engaged to his rival. Now, the time may be ripe to finally take love into his own hands!
