One of the world’s most frequently performed operas, The Elixir of Love is cherished for its whimsical wit and endearing characters, not to mention the many intoxicating duets and “Una furtiva lagrima,” one of the most hauntingly beautiful of all tenor arias.
Join us for this insight into The Elixir of Love and learn more about Gaetano Donizetti, who also composed the beloved yet darker Lucia di Lammermoor. Austin Lyric Opera continues to expand its partnership with the University of Texas this year, as Bethany McLemore and Matthew Bell, doctoral students from the Butler School of Music, will lead our discussion.
Plus: Enjoy a performance of The Elixir Project, our fun, free community-wide opera production, based on The Elixir of Love. You won’t want to miss this one!
Bring a friend and enjoy a night of food, fun and enlightening presentations!
