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

Verdi’s powerful story of forbidden love, betrayal, and revenge promises to keep audiences enthralled. Soaring arias, gorgeous ensembles, fabulous costumes and lavish sets bring this sinister masked ball to life.
The all-star cast includes tenors Salvatore Licitra and Frank Porretta, who share the role of the ebullient and passionate King Gustavus III. Sopranos Tamara Wilson and Susan Neves portray the innocent wife Amelia with Luca Salsi and Timothy Mix sharing the role of Count Anckarström, her betrayed husband and Gustavus’ trusted friend. Mezzo-soprano Elena Manistina sings the pivotal role of the fortune teller Mam’zelle Arvidson. Conductor Daniele Callegari and director James Robinson make their WNO debuts in this stunning production from Opera Colorado.
