A love struck man, a village beauty, an army captain, and a travelling doctor with a magic potion – all set in a picturesque early 1900’s Canadian locale oozing with small town charm. L’Elisir d’amore (The Elixir of Love) is without a doubt one of the most well-known operas of the bel canto era, the most performed of all Donizetti’s operas, and has not been seen by Vancouver audiences since 1999.

L’Elisir d’amore (The Elixir of Love) is a Cinderella-esque tale in which a poor and hapless young man wins the hand of a small Canadian town’s most beautiful young woman (with the help of a secret “elixir” from a travelling salesman). Spoiler alert: The elixir is Bordeaux.
