WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
One of the world's most frequently performed operas, The Elixir of Love is cherished for its whimsical wit and endearing characters, not to mention the many intoxicating duets and "Una furtiva lagrima," one of the most hauntingly beautiful of all tenor arias. Fresh from WNO's Anna Bolena last fall, renowned British director Stephen Lawless returns with his warm and inspired take on Donizetti's masterpiece, last seen by WNO audiences in 2006. The production also features an accomplished cast of new and familiar faces, along with young American conductor Ward Stare in his WNO debut.
