Marshall Performing Arts Center
by Gaetano Donizetti & Felice Romani
This season’s “It’s Almost Summer” opera is Donizetti’s L’elisir d’amore (The Elixir of Love) – a frothy concoction of hummable melodies, colorful characters, true love, and a happy ending.
Stage Director Bradley Greenwald makes his Lyric Opera of the North debut with this production. Dirk Meyer conducts. The LOON chorus will be busier than ever in this luscious, lovely opera – just right for an almost-summer outing!
Sung in Italian with English Supertitles.
Will Kids Like This Opera??
This is a family friendly show. It will be most enjoyable for kids who can read the supertitles, as it is sung in Italian. With intermission it will last just over 2 1/2 hours. The music will be recognizable to all the students who saw Little LOON’s Opera for the Young adaptation of The Elixir of Love in their schools. This is the original version.
