A Comic Opera by W.S. Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan.
Wealthy aristocrat Alexis eagerly anticipates his wedding to the equally aristocratic Aline.
A passionate believer in the power of love to level all class distinctions, he invites the Family Sorcerer, John Wellington Wells, to brew a love potion. This causes everyone in the village to fall in love with the first person they see after drinking it and results in some comically mismatched pairings. The opera contains some of Sullivan’s most glorious music.
