J.K.Tyl theatre presents the last performance - L’Elisir D’Amore

The Italian composer Gaetano Donizetti is the author of more than seventy operas – both serious and comic. Although his lesser known works appear on stages from time to time, a favourite handful of his operas are the most popular played, among which L’Elisir D’Amore, as one of the best operas by this composer, undoubtedly belongs. This opera tells a story from the Italian countryside, and of a shy young man, Nemorino, in love with a rich young farmer’s wife, Adina, who he tries to gain with the aid of " L’Elisir D’Amore" (a love potion) from an itinerant “snake oil peddler”, Dulcamara. The love potion is in fact an ordinary wine which, when Nemorino drinks enough, he loses his shyness and confesses his love to Adina. This opera has not only beautiful arias, from which "Una furtiva lagrima" gained worldwide popularity, and which should not be missing from any tenor’s repertoire, but also wittily written ensembles. This opera is presented in Italian with Czech subtitles.
