L'Elisir d'Amore - St. Margarethen Open Air Opera
Liebestrank - St. Margarethen Open Air Oper
Gaėtano Donizetti's comic opera, «The Elixir of Love» is a tumultuous new production. The shy peasant,
Nemorino falls in love with the flamboyant landowner Adina. But Adina only has eyes for the handsome
Sergeant Belcore. That is until the travelling jack-ofall-trades, Dulcamara, arrives in town and the gullible
Nemorino buys a love potion from him - which in reality is nothing more than a bottle of red wine. When
Nemorino is prepared to put his life at risk just to get hold of more of the mysterious miracle potion, the
tide turns: Adina's heart makes the arduous journey to peasant Nemorino.
