Both performances will be sung in Italian with projected English translation.
In one of the most beloved comic operas of all time, a love-struck young man is determined to win the affections of the village beauty. Knowing she is also being wooed by a boastful stranger, he purchases a love potion from a scheming traveling salesman that gives him the extra dose of confidence he needs to thwart a rival and win the woman of his dreams. Beautiful music abounds as the elixir creates just as many problems as it solves. Music by Gaetano Donizetti. Libretto by Felice Romani.
This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area.
