For this special production of Donizetti’s delightful opera, L’Elisir d’Amore (The Elixir of Love) performed by Teatro Sociale di Como AsLiCo, the
opera is set in a failing cough syrup factory. Inspired in part by Charlie Chaplin’s film Modern Times, and Mel Stuart’s Willy Wonka and the Choc- olate Factory, the opera takes place in the 1930’s. Nemorino is a worker mad- ly in love with the owner’s beautiful daughter Adina, who eventually
wins her heart. Children in the audience become Nemorino’s fellow factory workers singing arias and taking part in the action to save the factory.
Enjoy the key message that if you have good, inventive ideas and work hard, you can be successful.
