About The Elixir of Love

“Love is in the air…and in the bottle!”

Shy cameraman Nemorino is hopelessly in love with film star Adina, but will she ever look behind the scenes, or past her super self-confident co-star, Belcore, to give him a chance? Enter “Doctor” Dulcamara from craft services, whose magic love potion is guaranteed to do the trick! Several swigs later, a comedy of blockbuster proportions unfolds – on screen and off! Drink in Donizetti’s delectable comic delight, delicious from the first sip to the last. Guaranteed no hangover – just a Hollywood ending!

In Italian with English Supertitles

Free Student Final Dress Rehearsal

Anchorage Opera would like to open the final dress rehearsal to K-12 students at no cost for our production of The Elixir of Love by Gaetano Donizetti on Oct 25, 2023 at 7:00 pm performed in Italian with projected Supertitles in English. Seating is limited. We will do our best to accommodate any K-12 student that would like to come, however some parties may receive fewer tickets than requested based on availability.

Please contact Kaylee Wagle at 907-279-2557 or email to request your vouchers.

As this is a coveted event for many schools in the Anchorage area, please do not request more tickets than you will use. If you are promised a certain number of tickets and find you will not be able to use them all, please contact us as soon as possible so that people on the wait list can be notified and make arrangements to attend.

We hope to see a full house of  K-12 Students there! BRAVO
