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

This was the second time I have seen this show, but my wife had never seen it, so I took her for New Year's eve. As I expected, she loved it as much as I did. She even cried at the end, no kidding! I asked her why and she said that the ending made her so happy. We had very good orchestra seats, and as usual, there was no hassle getting our tickets. The show was excellent. The audience was comprised of patrons of all ages. Everyone seemed to have a great time. The two dogs were real crowd pleasers too.
