Fort Worth Opera presents The Elixir of Love by Gaetano Donizetti

This delightful confection of a comedy proves that true love (and a little wine) can conquer all.  In Donizetti’s light comedy, a young peasant man falls madly in love with a rich landowner’s daughter. Lacking the courage to express his affections, he buys cheap wine disguised as a love potion from a traveling barker. Believing it is the real thing, he overcomes his fears and wins her heart. Proving love (and a little wine) can conquer all.  Features Ava Pine as Adina and Michael Fabiano as Nemorino. Order your Fort Worth Opera tickets.
