SCOTTISH OPERA PRESENTS THE ELIXIR OF LOVE- 4th October 2016
1st October 2016
*** Note this event is in Thurso High School
***Donizetti's sunny comedy takes to the road, touring 17 smaller venues around Scotland. Dynamic young British director Oliver Platt and designer Oliver Townsend (Rodelinda 2013) take their inspiration from the world of P.G. Wodehouse in a cheeky, vividly characterised show with its tongue firmly in its cheek.
‘Elixir offers a joyous couple of hours of escape. It is a perfect opera; boisterous, fun-filled and fast-paced, with the ideal mixture of comedy and romance.' - Oliver Platt
The lively and lyrical score sees Donizetti at his very best, from the beauty of ‘Una furtiva lagrima' to the fun of Dulcamara's patter songs. The cast includes Ellie Laugharne (The Pirates of Penzance 2013), Welsh tenor Elgan Llyr Thomas, winner of 2015’s prestigious Stuart Burrows International Voice Award, and acclaimed baritone James Cleverton. They’re accompanied by five players from The Orchestra of Scottish Opera in a new instrumental arrangement by Scottish Opera’s Head of Music Derek Clark.
