    Elixir of Love

    3:00 pmDiana Wortham Theatre

    The Elixir of Love is one of the world’ most beloved comic operas, centered around a country bumpkin in love with a girl out of his league. He purchases a “ love potion” from a traveling quack doctor to help him in his pursuit and we are brought along through an evening of beautiful music (including the enchanting “una furtiva lagrima"), romantic rivalry, and hilarious comedy. Does the “elixir” work? Come and find out!
