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

Outstanding singing, great music, nice production. All in all a revelation about a piece that is infrequently performed. Plot of the opera is somewhat silly, but that is not unusual for operas. One more performance (Mon. night, 11/17), so take advantage of it if you have a chance.
Renée Fleming, one of the greatest sopranos of our day, makes her WNO debut as the infamous Lucrezia Borgia, a role she shares with Sondra Radvanovsky.
Composed by Gaetano Donizetti
Libretto by Felice Romani
Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
The running time for this production is approximately two hours and 42 minutes including two 20-minute intermissions.
