Noontime Showcase: Portland Opera To Go: Elixir Of Love says
Portland Opera To Go provides children and families with the opportunity to engage in the rewarding world of opera by bringing high-quality, accessible programming to communities throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington.

Our 50th anniversary celebration began in Vienna and it ends in the American Wild West, a creative and ingenious setting for Donizetti’s The Elixir of Love. Like Die Fledermaus, The Elixir of Love is a celebration of love’s intoxicating power…and the powerful intoxication of a certain snake-oil salesman’s 40-proof love potion.

Nemorino the cowpoke is snake-bit in love. High-falutin’ Adina laughs off his every attempt to rustle up some romance with her, especially after the gaudy Sergeant Belcore rides into town. Desperate, Nemorino enlists in Belcore’s battalion and invests his bonus in a large dose of Doctor Dulcamara’s “Elixir of Love.” Giddy with hope, Nemorino suddenly seems younger, handsomer, and richer to all the village girls. Even Adina starts responding to his homespun charm, so she packs Belcore off to conquer other hearts and pledges her own to Nemorino.
