Got kids? Intimidated by the idea of opera? Here is your opportunity to introduce opera to your kids and maybe to yourself, with the Portland Opera To Go series. First up: A rollicking, 50-minute, English-language version of Donizetti's brilliantly funny coming of age tale, The Elixir of Love.
Nemorino has a problem. Klutzy and shy, he is madly in love with the beautiful Adina...but she is swept away by dashing fly-boy, Belcore.
Enter a charming rogue named Dulcamara, with miracles to sell-including a very potent potion he is calling an elixir of love. Will it change everything for Nemorino? Or do the true answers lie within his heart?
After The Elixir of Love, join us for a concert of operas greatest hits-a great way to get familiar with the genre. We guarantee, you won't think of opera in the same way again.
