Elixir of Love at the Houston Grand Opera


This is the last weekend for the Houston Grand Opera’s 09-10 season starter, Elixir of Love. From their site:

“Donizetti’s sweet love story, THE ELIXIR OF LOVE is at Houston Grand Opera from Oct 23 to Nov 7, 2009 www.HoustonGrandOpera.org/ElixirofLove

This sparkling folktale is one of Donizettis most popular operas. Lovesick Nemorino falls madly in love with the young landowner Adina knowing well that she is out of his league. Luckily, the scheming Dr. Dulcamara has just the cure to what ails him. Russian soprano Ekaterina Siurina sings the minx Adina and John Osborn is Nemorino. Internationally renowned Italian bass-baritone Alessandro Corbelli plays Dr. Dulcamara, and Liam Bonner is the flamboyant Sergeant Belcore. Directed by Annabel Arden, this delightful production takes place in a rustic Italian town square.”
