Announcing a new Meetup for The Santa Cruz Classical Music, Theater, Dance Meetup Group!

What: Gaetano Donizetti's "Elixir of Love"

When: Saturday, June 5,[masked]:30 PM

UCSC Music Center Recital Hall
Heller and Meyer Dr.
Santa Cruz, CA 95064

UCSC's annual spring opera production will be Gaetano Donizetti's "L'elisir d'amore," directed by Brian Staufenbiel. UCSC Orchestra conducted by Nicole Paiement. Sung in Italian with supertitles.

"Set in a World War II military factory, our production of Donizetti?s timeless comic opera tells a love story with wonderful music and a fabulous chorus. The doting Nemorino is madly in love with Adina, the factory owner, who hardly gives him the time of day. Along comes Sergeant Belcore who spurs Adina's interest so much so that she even considers marrying him, further fueling Nemorino's despair and desperation. Who can help poor Nemorino before it is too late? Only the quack Dr. Dulcamara, a charming hustler and con man who peddles bad Bordeaux as a magic "elixir." Dulcamara helps Nemorino get his groove back and find love in the end!"

Saturday, June 5. Let's meet in the lobby after 7:00 pm. If we haven't met, look for the woman with the Lily Munster/Susan Sontag white streak in her hair.

Reserved seating: $25 general, $21 seniors. Purchase tickets here
