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

Composed by Ambroise Thomas
Libretto by Michele Carré and
Production from Lyric Opera of Kansas City
Sung in French with English supertitles
Ambroise Thomas' musically and dramatically virtuosic adaptation of the classic story follows Hamlet in his pursuit to avenge his father's murder. Known for Ophelia's hauntingly beautiful mad scene, "À vos jeux, mes amis," this dazzling production by Thaddeus Strassberger brings Shakespeare's famous play to life. The opera is conducted by WNO's General Director Plácido Domingo and Patrick Fournillier.
The running time for this production is approximately three hours and five minutes including one 20-minute intermission.
