Live Band: Will West and the Friendly Strangers

Simulcast
THE ELIXIR OF LOVE, Gaetano Donizetti
The cowpoke Nemorino goes from doormat to dreamboat and wins the hand of high-falutin’ Adina, thanks to a double dose of Dr. Dulcamara’s 40-proof love potion. The Elixir of Love will be set in the American Wild West of the 1880s, a delightfully inventive and uniquely appropriate locale for the action.

This event is funded by a special grant from Wells Fargo.
