Award-winning opera troupe to perform at Dordt College

February 10, 2014

The Des Moines Metro Opera’s educational touring troupe, OPERA Iowa, will present a two-hour English version of Donizetti’s The Elixir of Love in the B.J. Haan Auditorium on the campus of Dordt College. The romantic comedy event is free to the public on Tuesday, February 18, at 7:30 p.m.

The Elixir of Love mixes love, jealousy, and mysterious potions. Young Nemorino is in love with the wealthy, but fickle, Adina. When Sergeant Belcore also sets his sights on Adina, Nemorino turns to the visiting “doctor” Dulcamara for an elixir of love, guaranteed to turn Adina’s head and win her heart. Heads turn, but who wins her heart?

The award-winning OPERA Iowa troupe has performed throughout the Midwest, as well as in Japan and China, to more than 700,000 students and adults.
