1 x 120 min

A tumultuous new production of Gaëtano Donizetti’s melancholically romantic comic opera, «The Elixir of Love», is presented for the first time as part of the Sankt Margarethen Opera Festival on the Ruffini stage in the Roman Quarry. Donizetti’s captivating melodies blend with the charming wit of the comic storyline. The shy peasant, Nemorino falls in love with the flamboyant landowner Adina. But Adina only has eyes for the handsome Sergeant Belcore. That is until the travelling jack-of-all-trades, Dulcamara, arrives in town and the gullible Nemorino buys a love potion from him – which in reality is nothing more than a bottle of red wine. When Nemorino is prepared to put his life at risk just to get hold of more of the mysterious miracle potion, the tide turns: Adina’s heart makes the arduous journey to peasant Nemorino. Even Dulcamara begins to believe in the magical effect of his wine and sniffs a brilliant business idea.
