State Repertory Opera presented Donizetti's L'Elisir d'Amore -- The Elixer of Love --
on March 18, 2006 7:30 pm at the beautiful
Alexander Kasser Theater at Montclair State University in Montclair NJ.
[ cast ]
SRO's fun-filled version of Donizetti's opera was set in the "Old West" in the
late 1800's. The age-old story of boy loves girl and girl plays hard-to-get
is still the same today. The "snake-oil" salesman who comes to the little
town to sell his miraculous remedies is part of history all over the world.
However, the "elixir" he sells to the lovelorn lad turns out to be the
Real Thing -- or so they all think -- until we get to the true reason and
then the very happy ending. Fabulous singing and lots of dancing made this
production a must-see for all opera lovers.
The opera was sung in Italian with English supertitles.
Tickets were $40 (or $35 for seniors and students), and could be purchased at the door
