The Elixir of Love, is one of the sunniest and sweetest comic operas ever written. It is the story of a simple country farm hand named Nemorino, who falls in love with the farm owner's rich and haughty daughter, Adina. He is so desperately in love that he gives up everything he owns to buy a mysterious "elixir of love" from a traveling salesman, not knowing it is really just a bottle of red wine. After a number of comic twists and turns, true love wins out and Adina finally admits she loves Nemorino. The Elixir of Love is a perfect opera for Spring and a lovely way to end a highly dramatic season.
