1950s twist: watch opera L'elisir d'amore

1950s twist: watch opera L’elisir d’amore
Lena Weber

Adina is the hottest star in Hollywood – and Nemorino adores her. When an ambitious army officer makes a very public proposal to Adina, Nemorino is in despair, until Dulcamara, the smooth-talking stylist, comes to his rescue with a remedy which he promises will win Adina once and for all.

Donizetti’s warm-hearted opera L’elisir d’amore fizzes with wit, great tunes and a keen-eyed dissection of the way love can confound even the cleverest of us.

Director Valentina Ceschi sets The Elixir of Love at a glamorous Fifties garden party at the height of Hollywood’s Golden Age, with a new English libretto by Verity Bargate Award-winner Thomas Eccleshare.
