The Elixir of Love
February 11, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$28.50 – $60
Center Stage Opera presents a fully-staged production of Donizetti’s “The Elixir of Love”. Performed with the acclaimed Center Stage Opera Orchestra, conducted by CSO Music Director Mercedes Musotto, Director Dylan F. Thomas re-envisions Donizetti’s traditional opera to take place on a San Fernando Valley high school campus in 1985 – and what better venue for that than an actual Valley high school campus?!
Taking inspiration from the hilarious teen comedies of the 80s, the story of “Elixir” lends itself perfectly to the stereotypical story – Adina becomes the popular head cheerleader, Giannetta is her slutty best friend, Belcore is the football quarterback stud, Nemorino is the geeky mascot (who goes from, like, totally geek, to totally chic), and Dulcamara is the sleazy substitute teacher peddling performance-enhancing drugs to the students. Nemorino is in love with Adina (who isn’t?) but, of course, she is totally out of his league… or is she?
For this production, which will be sung in the original Italian, the supertitle translation will be projected above the stage in English and Spanish, both complete with totally righteous 80s slang!
