NEXT UP ON OPERA IS ON STREAMING

  

THE ELIXIR OF LOVE

STREAMING NOVEMBER 28 AT 10AM PACIFIC

VIEW TRAILER

Step right up and sample our latest streaming special, Gaetano Donizetti’s The Elixir of Love, the fool-proof formula for adding some zip to your weekend!

International sensation Ramón Vargas stars as the down-and-out Nemorino, a poor villager in 1915 Napa Valley.

He’s madly in love with the local beauty, played by soprano Inva Mula, but has no fortune or charms to entice her — until a traveling salesman passes through selling a magic love potion. Armed with this liquid courage, Nemorino sees his dismal love life turned upside down in this fizzy comedy.

With conducting from bel canto master Bruno Campanella, director James Robinson whips up a “musical and theatrical meringue” the San Francisco Chronicle calls “perfection.” See it this weekend, as part of our Opera Is ON series. Directed for the screen by Frank Zamacona.

Run time: 2 hours and 17 minutes
