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

    Given how many wonderful winter-blooming houseplants there are in the world, I find it sort of astonishing that poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima) is listed as the best selling houseplant in the US and Canada. But I suppose that fact must be chalked up to a couple things: Poinsettia are festive and fun. What’s not to love about […]
  • Goodnight gardens (Dec 05, '14)
    After some festive weeks spent preparing for our Christmas display and this week’s wreath workshops, it was pure pleasure to be out in the gardens again. Despite the chill that crept into fingers and toes. Earlier this fall we got a jump on what’s commonly known as “putting the gardens to bed”. — I must have already […]
