The Elixir of Love

We will conclude our 2017-18 season with Donizetti’s L’elisir d’Amore – The Elixir Of Love, a comedy about a traveling medicine show huckster who claims to possess a love potion.

People have pinned their romantic hopes on magic love potions for thousands of years. Why, the very name ‘aphrodisiac’ comes from the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite.  And whether it’s Love Potion Number 9 or the Funky Cold Medina, people have been singing about love potions for a long time too.
