Gaetano Donizetti (1832)

L’elisir d’amore is the ‘male Cinderella’ tale of Nemorino, ineffectual but good-hearted, and his love for the very self-assured Adina, who fancies the experienced charmer Belcore. When the quack Dr. Dulcamara comes to town touting a miraculous ‘love potion’, Nemorino thinks his prayers have been answered. But is it really the potion that makes him suddenly irresistible to all the girls in the village?

Daniel Slater’s sunny 1950s-style production, complete with hot-air balloon and Vespas, is a perfect fit for Donizetti’s irrepressibly fresh comedy. Funny and moving, the opera includes one of the best-loved of tenor arias, ‘Una furtiva lagrima’. The cast is headed by four singers who’ve each made a strong impression in recent Opera North productions: Gabriela Iştoc and Duncan Rock as, respectively, Mimì and Marcello inLa Bohème (2014); Jung Soo Yun, Macduff in Verdi’s Macbeth (2014); and Richard Burkhard in the title role of The Marriage of Figaro (2015).
