In Donizetti's lovable comic opera, handsome peasant Nemorino has the misfortune to fall head over heels for fickle and feisty landowner Adina. Without money, he just can't compete with wealthy Sergeant Belcore, Adina's dashing yet pompous suitor.

Enter the elixir of love, peddled by an eccentric traveling quack, Doctor Dulcamara. Though it's only cheap table wine, Nemorino is convinced this "magical tonic" has now empowered him to win Adina's affections--even as her wedding to Sergeant Belcore leaps into full swing! Might his newfound confidence and uninhibited charm melt her heart after all? (Washington National Opera)
