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

The dancing was superb - as always.. The new ballets allowed the dancers to showcase their talents - especially the men.The third ballet (Wheldon) was my favorite, and both new ones will surely become a lasting part of the NYC repertoire.
The acclaimed New York City Ballet, renowned for its linear purity, speed, and musicality, performs two mixed repertory programs accompanied by the Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra.
