STAGE TUBE: Sneak Peek at Gulfshore Opera's ELIXIR OF LOVE

Gulfshore Opera will present Gaetano Donizetti's L'elisir d'amore (Elixir of Love) for two performances at venues in Charlotte and Collier counties, on April 15 and 21. Steffanie Pearce, Founder and General Director, has created a show that includes both celebrated and up and coming artists from around the world, the Gulfshore Opera Orchestra and Chorus, and a collaboration with Gulfshore Ballet, a local ballet school. Check out a sneak peek below!

Composer Donizetti's light-hearted comedy bubbles with effervescent arias and charm as the elixir causes as many problems as it solves. It is a story of Nemorino, a poor peasant in love with a beautiful landowner, Adina, and tormented by her utter indifference. The Elixir of Love, is one of Donizetti's most popular works and is perhaps most known for the famous tenor aria, "Una furtiva lagrima." Performed regularly throughout the world, this opera is full of comedy, romance, vocal fireworks, and a happily ever after ending.

Ireland's finest tenor, Anthony Kearns, internationally celebrated South African bass-baritone Musa Ngqungwana, and international award winning American soprano Danielle Talamantes, will lead the cast. Ryan McAdams, an international rising star of the conducting scene, will be conducting.
