With music that sparkles and a playful libretto, Washington National Opera's production of Donizetti's comedy is utterly charming. Handsome Nemorino is mad for the feisty Adina. She doesn't know he exists, but he'll do anything to get her to fall in love with him. Enter the lovable quack Dr. Dulcamara, who provides Nemorino with a "magic" potion -- the elixir of the title -- that sweeps up the lovers in a comically romantic whirlwind. Filled with whimsical wit, beautiful arias and intoxicating duets, the opera is sung in Italian with projected English titles. Learn More

My wife and I both agreed that it was like an acrobatic, Christmas themed hallucination. The performances were incredible. The only thing that kept this from being 5 stars for me was this kind of bizarre recurring theme about consumerism and overpriced stuff in a bad economy. Highly recommended and definitely family friendly.

Renowned director Neil Goldberg, creator of the groundbreaking Broadway hit Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy, re-imagines the holiday season with Cirque Dreams Holidaze. An international cast of over 30 artists costumed as holiday ornaments come to life and perform astonishing feats of disbelief. Experience gingerbread men flipping mid air, toy soldiers marching on thin wires, snowmen daringly balancing, icemen powerfully sculpting, penguins spinning, puppets caroling, and reindeer soaring high above a landscape of holiday wonderment. An original music score and some holiday favorites accompany hundreds of spectacular costumes adorning a magical tree of dreams in a setting of gigantic gifts, colossal candy canes and 30-foot towering toy soldiers. The perfect way to come in from the cold, forget the holiday stresses, and rediscover the magic of the season!
