Opera Providence Summer Concert Series:  L'Elisir d'amore (The Elixir of Love)

Join Opera Providence as they will be performing a live, full opera, under the tent at beautiful Blithewold Mansion, Gardens & Arboretum. L'elisir d'amore (The Elixir of Love) is an opera by the Italian composer Gaetano Donizetti. It is a melodramma giocoso in two acts. Felice Romani wrote the Italian libretto. Written in haste, L'elisir d'amore was the most often performed opera in Italy between 1838 and 1842. Today it is one of the most frequently performed of all Donizetti's operas.

This special performance, held under the tent (rain or shine) is a great introduction to the opera for the whole family!

*** BYOB and picnic. Guests will be seated at tables in the tent.

Thursday, August 1, 2013 *Doors open at 5:30 pm, so please come early to tour the Mansion and stroll through the Gardens.  Performance from 6:30 to 8:30 pm

  • Hope springs (Feb 20, '15)
    It’s awfully hard to feel optimistic about spring when the snow is knee-deep and deeper and the temperatures are in the single digits. It feels for all the world like winter will go on forever. This is what our world looks like right now… Beautiful, yes… But I think most of us are ready to move on. […]
  • Deep winter (Feb 06, '15)
    Last week’s blizzard seem to open the gate to a real winter complete with snow storm after snow storm, and hard-core cold. We’re being tested on our ability to stay upright on icy patches, and on keeping our cool when we can’t get where we’re going on time. But we’re also being reminded about what we love about […]
