This comic opera is Donizetti’s most performed opera worldwide with sparkling effervescent tunes, emotional melodies and the quack medicine man selling his love potion. The characters develop before our very eyes in a most touching love story containing one of the most famous tenor arias of all time “Una furtiva lagrima.”

Directed by Kyle Lang (Lucia di Lammermoor 2018) returning for his third production with Virginia Opera and Cecilia Violetta Lo’pez (unforgettable in La Traviata, 2015) returns to sing another of Italian opera’s most appealing heroines, Adina. Bass-baritone Matthew Burns, returning for his sixth production at Virginia Opera, compliments the cast as Dulcamara.

Running time: 2h 55m
Sung in Italian with English Supertitles
