Love potion or snake oil? When poor Nemorino fails in his attempt to woo the lovely and wealthy Adina, he turns to quack Dr. Dulcamara, purveyor of phony potions, who assures him that his brew will do the trick. But when it comes to love, the couple learns that the real thing – love that is – beats any elixir the doctor can concoct. Donizetti’s beloved comic opera will charm you with laughs and memorable music, set in a Livermore Valley vineyard, featuring a stellar cast and one of opera’s greatest tenor arias.
Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
