Based on Donizetti’s The Elixir of Love
Performing on Tour in Calgary Schools: February 19 - March 15, 2019
Calgary Opera's Emerging Artists will tour Nemorino and the Magic Potion. Adapted by Aaron Coates and Mel Kirby, this tuneful and whimsical opera is based on Donizetti’s The Elixir of Love.
This 45-minute English language version for young audiences is set in a contemporary rodeo fairground. Nemorino, an awkward and slightly clumsy carny (carnival booth operator) is infatuated with Addy, a rodeo trick rider who has eyes on Belcore, the brash and boisterous bull rider. Carnival huckster Dulcamara offers Nemorino a magical potion to make all his dreams of love come true. What ensues, nobody can foresee! The fully staged production with keyboard accompaniment, sets and costumes is performed by the young professional singers of Calgary Opera’s Emerging Artist Development Program.
