The Elixir of Love

With the popular, romantic, comic opera L’Elisir d’Amore (The Elixir of Love) by Italian composer Gaetano Donizetti Larnaca Festival 2019 closes its curtain. L’Elisir d’Amore constitutes one of the most charming and melodic operas of the international repertoire but also one of the old time favorites of opera lovers worldwide.

Donizetti’s comic masterpiece L’Elisir d’ Amore, will be presented by the Orion Productions in collaboration with the Artisti Orioni Soloist & Vocal Ensemble and the Orion Chamber Orchestra. Libretto by Felice Romani.

The opera consists of two acts and the Italian libretto was written by Felice Romani based on Eugène Scribe’s Le Philtre (1831). It premiered at Teatro della Canobbiana, in Milan on 12 May 1832.

This opera has established Donizetti as composer of comic opera since he managed to introduce the emotional element into this genre of opera. In this work of opera Donizetti created a pleasant atmosphere where the dominant features are bright colours and pure emotions which to this day allows audiences to leave with a smile since comic elements are followed by emotional scenes.

L’Elisir d’Amore: the plot
The plot takes place at a small village in Italy and it narrates the love of a poor villager, Nemorino, for the beautiful, rich and coquettish Adina who is flirting with captain Belcore. Nemorino, believes that if he drinks a magic elixir she will fall in love with him. The travelling doctor Dulcamara takes advantage of Nemorino’s naivety and sells him a bottle of Bordeaux wine claiming that it is a love potion. Nemorino in order to find the money to buy the so called elixir joins the army. When Adina hears about it, she feels convinced for the intensity of his emotions, she confesses her love for him as well and their love story comes to a happy end.
