Light, lyrical and bursting with energy, L’elisir d’amore was the biggest success of Donzietti’s career – a comedy with the softest of hearts and the sweetest of melodies, including Nemorino’s much-loved aria “Una furtive lagrima”. Updating the action to the 1940s, Annabel Arden’s production celebrates the opera’s original joyful, colourful spirit, painting an affectionate picture of an Italy on the brink of political change.
Korean tenor Sehoon Moon stars as the lovesick Nemorino, with Glyndebourne debuts from soprano Benedetta Torre as the flirtatious Adina and baritone Matthew Durkan as rival suitor Belcore.
This performance is perfect for schools. A chance for students to enjoy a fully-staged production and to immerse themselves in the excitement of opera, potentially for the first time.
Tickets are £8 for school groups. To book tickets for a school group, call 0333 009 5384 (Mon-Fri, 9am-5.30pm) or email [email protected]
In 1866, Liverpool Empire began its life as The Prince of Wales Theatre and Opera House and was run by gas light and steam power. The name changed to what it is today in 1895, so has had its name for over 100 years. It went through many refurbishments, before being bought by ATG and the theatre now stands about a quarter size bigger than it originally stood.
