The Elixir of Love - Click for cast

State Repertory Opera presented Donizetti's L'Elisir d'Amore -- The Elixer of Love -- on March 18, 2006 7:30 pm at the beautiful Alexander Kasser Theater at Montclair State University in Montclair NJ.  [ cast ]

SRO's fun-filled version of Donizetti's opera was set in the "Old West" in the late 1800's. The age-old story of boy loves girl and girl plays hard-to-get is still the same today. The "snake-oil" salesman who comes to the little town to sell his miraculous remedies is part of history all over the world. However, the "elixir" he sells to the lovelorn lad turns out to be the Real Thing -- or so they all think -- until we get to the true reason and then the very happy ending. Fabulous singing and lots of dancing made this production a must-see for all opera lovers.

The opera was sung in Italian with English supertitles.

Tickets were $40 (or $35 for seniors and students), and could be purchased at the door or in advance by calling 973-763-7969. Or click Flyer & Order Form.
