OperaUpClose presents Donizetti's romantic comedy in a new English version by Thomas Eccleshare.

Director Valentina Ceschi sets this charming nineteenth-century opera at a glamourous 1950s garden party at the height of Hollywood's Golden Age. Adina is the hottest star in town- and Nemorino adores her. When an ambitious army officer, Belcore, makes a very public proposal to Adina, Nemorino is in despair, until Dulcamara, the smooth-talking stylist, comes to his rescue with a remedy he promises will win Adina once and for all.

Starring Una Reynolds/ Prudence Sanders (Adina), Philip Lee/Alex Vearey-Roberts (Nemorino), Marc Callahan/Simon Meadows (Belcore), Matthew Stiff/Alistair Sutherland (Dulcumara) and Caroline Kennedy/Eleanor Ross (Gianetta). The musical director is John Gibbons.
