The Elixir of Love


Making for a great Valentine’s Day outing, the UGA Opera Theatre and Opera Orchestra present Gaetano Donizetti’s 1832 comic opera L’elisir d’amore, or The Elixir of Love, which follows the effects of a “magic” potion on the love triangle between beautiful landowner Adina (played by Elisabeth Slaten), starry-eyed farm worker Nemorino (Joseph Michael Brent) and army officer Belcore (Evan Tyor). Reset to a Georgia peach farm in the late 1930s, the production also includes Avery Draught as Adina’s friend, Giannette, and Christopher Voss as Dr. Dulcamara, the washed-up bootlegger who purveys the potion. Under the direction of Frederick Burchinal, the production will feature special guest conductor Maestro Imre Palló, who served as one of the principal conductors of the New York City Opera at Lincoln Center for over two decades. Jennifer Bakst, who has presented numerous productions throughout Germany and the U.K., will be the guest stage director. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 8 p.m. Sunday’s performance begins at 3 p.m. Tickets are $18 or $5 with a student ID.
