Our next production, Donizetti’s ‘L’elisir d’amore’ is one of the most popular comic operas.
The rich but capricious Adina encourages hot-blooded Sergeant Belcore’s attentions to try and provoke her timorous suitor Nemorino. Enter quack ‘Dr’ Dulcamara whose ‘magic’ elixir may just be the thing to cure his shyness ...
The ever-popular ‘L’elisir’ plays like a farce, with broad characters and all the eccentricities of rustic village life.
Set in the Basque country, the show is fully staged with chamber quintet and sung in English with surtitles.
This is a warm, sunny show, perfect for an early summer outing to celebrate the royal wedding!
Tickets available from the Electric Theatre- Wed £21, Friday and Saturday £23.
Free preshow talk on by the directors on Friday at 6.30 in the auditorium
