L`Elisir D`Amore

Event information

The Cape Town Opera brings L`Elisir D`Amore (The Elixir of Love) to the Theatre On The Bay for four performances from 13 - 16 October.

The comic opera, composed by Gaetano Donizetti, follows the beautiful Adina and her charming yet clumsy admirer, Nemorino, through their tumultuous and often capricious courtship. With the (often misguided) guiding hand of 'Doctor' Dulcamara's 'elixir', Nemorino accesses super-human courage to win his muse's heart.

The cast features Puerto Rican Tenor Juan Hernández as Nemorino, Brittany Smith as Adina, Conroy Scott as Doctor Dulcamara, Van Wyk Venter as Belcore and Linda Nteleza as Giannetta.

The production is directed by Magdalene Minnaar, with set design by Maritha Visagie, costume design by Rabia Davids and Maritha Visagie and movement direction by Fiona du Plooy.

The piano reduction of the orchestral score will be played by pianist José Dias. Cape Town Opera would like to thank Ian Burgess-Simpson Pianos, who are providing a wonderful Kawai GL-20 piano for the performances at Theatre on the Bay.

Time: Thurs and Fri from 7.30pm, Sat from 6pm, Sun from 3pm
