About L’Elisir d’amore
L’Elisir d’amore (The Elixir of Love) is a two-act romantic comedy in which a poor and hapless young man eventually wins the hand of the rich and educated town beauty. The love potion of the title unlocks the secret desires of all the main characters, and along the way the plot takes many amusing twists and turns. Chinese soprano Ying Fang, a first-rate coloratura soprano, makes her role debut as Adina. All of the other roles are sung by an exceptional all Canadian cast. Tenor Andrew Haji is note-perfect as Adina’s lovesick stalker, Nemorino, and shines with a perfect lyric tenor tone in the famous aria “Una furtiva lagrima”. Baritone Brett Plegato is pomposity and cockiness incarnate as Belcore, Nemorino’s rival for Adina’s affections. Dr. Dulcamara, the salesman behind the fake magic elixir, is sung in suitably wacky style by baritone Stephen Hegedus. Set in a small Canadian town just before WWI, the sets and costumes are whimsical and set the stage perfectly for this tale of innocence. Music Director Jonathan Darlington has total command of Donizetti’s richly textured score.

The performance will last approximately 2 hours and 25 minutes, including 1 intermission.

Sung in Italian with English SURTITLES.
