Travel to a glamorous 1950s seaside hotel to experience Donizetti’s The Elixir of Love in a part opera, part party, one-night-only event you’ll never forget.

A handsome young waiter with a dubious bottle of magic elixir, a quack salesman with a naughty opportunity, a suave officer in hot pursuit, and a gorgeous girl around whom all of this mayhem spins. Hop on your Vespa and travel to a glamorous 1950s seaside hotel on the Italian Riviera to immerse yourself in the sexy world of Donizetti’s raucous comedy The Elixir of Love and the beautiful Hotel Adina where it takes place.

Your Encounter begins with a fully-produced performance of Act 1, then explore the transformed opera house lobbies, filled with custom cocktails, marvelous mischief, and spectacular selfies inspired by the balmy Mediterranean setting of the opera in a transformed Opera House. Experience a sunny Italian piazza, a glitzy casino, a mermaid’s grotto, a naughty wine cellar hideout, and more. With unique surprises around every corner, you’ll enjoy la dolce vita all night long. Don't miss the one-night only, only-in-San Francisco event that you'll want to share with friends old and new!

Part opera, part party, all fire. Don your finest European resort attire or come as you are and get ready to dance, drink, and revel the night away.
