Synopsis: Nemorino is hopelessly in love with wealthy and beautiful Adina. Adina won’t give Nemorino the time of day, however, and allows the preposterously charming army sergeant Belcore to woo her. When Nemorino is about to lose his loved one, Dr. Dulcamara, a traveling snake oil salesman, provides him with a “love potion” which, although it is nothing more than cheap wine, helps save the day.
Starring Gennard Lombardozzi, Sarah Lawrence, Lee Gregory, Rod Nelman and Jennifer LeDoux. Conducted by Dirk Meyer, with stage direction by Bradley Greenwald.
The show is sung in Italian with English supertitles.
