L'Elisir d'Amore: Glyndebourne Touring Opera Orchestra
Nemorino, a naive village boy, is besotted with Adina, a farm owner, but she rejects his declarations of love. Fortunately, Doctor Dulcamara is on hand with the 'love potion' of the opera's title, to help him win her heart.
L'elisir d'amore is one of the most frequently performed of all Donizetti's operas: it combines a touching love story and hilarious comedy with beautiful music, including the well-loved aria 'Una furtiva lagrima'. Its premiere in Milan in 1832 was a triumph and secured Donizetti's place as one of the leading Italian opera composers of his day.
The charming production is set in the sun-drenched countryside of 1950s Italy, complete with haystacks, Vespas and even a stray dog. It is injected with lively, visual humour – from Nemorino's tipsy clowning to Dulcamara's lumbering truck from which he sells his quack remedies. Donizetti deftly brings his cast of characters alive with a sparkling score: Nemorino's devoted love for Adina is expressed through lyrical arias, while her animated, flamboyant style softens as her feelings towards Nemorino begin to change.
'During 1966 George Christie announced plans to start a touring company, and two years later GTO made its inaugural tour, visiting Newcastle, Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield and Oxford.
There were only two other touring opera companies at the time and Glyndebourne established its own identity immediately with its innovative productions performed to exceptionally high standards, benefiting as it did from the Festival's extended rehearsal period.
It was greeted by enormous critical acclaim and overwhelming public support which has continued ever since.'
