The Elixir of Love by Gaetano Donizetti. Donizetti's charming comedy is a celebration of innocence, so what setting could be better than a small Italian-American community in the Napa Valley, circa 1915? In this ingenious update, the naïve Nemorino believes that a love potion will win him Adina's heart. Tenor Ramón Vargas superbly embodies the role of the lovesick Nemorino. The beautiful but aloof Adina is sung by soprano Inva Mula. It's saucy, it's sweet, it's a stream of laughs and lovely melody… you just can't ask for more."(San Francisco Chronicle) Sung in Italian with English subtitles. Running Time of Opera: 2 hours and 38 minutes with one intermission.
