Great big ball of operatic fluff

No, seriously. It is. But fun fluff, with lots of gorgeous singing, in our shiny new venue at the Hemmens Cultural Center. Chicagoland folks should all come check it out!

See our pretty poster!

Nemorino believes the only way to win the love of Adina is with a magical love potion. Dr. Dulcamara sells him a bottle of cheap wine that he calls “Tristan’s Magic Love Potion.” Of course, the wine is not magical but Nemorino believes it is, especially when all the young ladies are after him. What he does not know is that his uncle has died and left him millions! With one drink, he gains the confidence he needs to win Adina’s heart and the opera ends with the celebration of the Love Potion.

Elgin OPERA’s Gala Event will be held at the Hemmens from 6:00-7:00 pm on February 9, 2008 and from 1:30 – 2:30 on February 10, 2008 and will include a Pre-opera lecture, Champagne toast, Hors d’Oeuvres, silent auction and opportunity to meet the Mayor of Elgin, Ed Schock, and meet the cast following the performance for the additional price of $40.
