L’ELISIR D’AMORE by Gaetano Donizetti
Conductor: Christopher Macatsoris
Cast: Boccia/Silva, Mancasola/Moore, Bowers/Mason/Nelson, Conner/Ngqungwana, Williams
Production: P. Harrison (scenery), V. Starr (clothes), A. Doak (lighting), N. Kidd (hair/make-up)

Production Description: The piece was set during WW2 in Mussolini’s northern Italian stronghold, just before the Allied liberation. It all took place in the town municipal library with Adina as Librarian and Nemorino as the janitor. Belcore was a “black shirt”, quite violent/fascistic. Dr. Dulcamara peddled the latest scientific cures. The resolution depicted the actual liberation and arrest of Belcore, along with the romantic uniting of the lovers.
