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

Or is it […]
  • The Trip on the Lusitania (May 01, '15)
