Passion promised by a “magic” love potion proves to be no match for the real thing in Gaetano Donizetti’s hilarious bel canto masterpiece, The Elixir of Love (L’elisir d’amore), directed by Jessica Wright and conducted by Roger Evans. A hapless, love-struck peasant named Nemorino falls head-over-heels for wealthy landowner Adina, but she has her eyes set on dashing young Colonel Belcore. In a foiled comic attempt to woo her, the pompous officer asks for her hand in marriage, but Adina is in no rush to settle down, or so she says.

Laughter ensues as quack doctor Dulcamara, a traveling peddler of cure-all tonics, rolls into town with a bottle of miracles, promising Nemorino that he will win the girl of his dreams. But will this liquid courage pay off? Will Adina marry the Colonel, or will love conquer all in the end?

2016 - Ravel & Pucinni

Ravel's The Spanish Hour and Pucinni's Il Tabarro were a fantastic combination that opened the night with humor and whimsey and ended with jealousy and rage as only opera can do.

2015 - Sweeney Todd

Not many shows can harness the dark side of humanity the way Sweeney Todd can.  Revenge and greed take over combined with the incredible music of Stephen Sondheim to produce a story of murder and frolic that audiences fell in love with.
