Win tickets for The Elixir of Love at London King’s Head Theatre

The Elixir of Love at London King’s Head Theatre

Adina is the hottest star in Hollywood – and Nemorino adores her. When an ambitious army officer makes a very public proposal to Adina, Nemorino is in despair, until Dulcamara, the smooth-talking stylist, comes to his rescue with a remedy which he promises will win Adina once and for all. Donizetti’s warm-hearted opera fizzes with wit, great tunes and a keen-eyed dissection of the way love can confound even the cleverest of us.

Director Valentina Ceschi sets The Elixir of Love at a glamourous 1950s garden party at the height of Hollywood’s Golden Age, with a new English libretto by Verity Bargate Award-winner Thomas Eccleshare.

….. the whole thing fizzes from start to finish as a piece of unpretentious fun.

★★★★     TIME OUT
….. crammed full of clever comic details and fizzes with vitality
