L’elisir d’amore
Gaetano Donizetti
(sung in Italian)

Gaetano Donizetti’s L’elisir d’amore, starring Rupert, Idaho native Cecilia Violetta López as Adina, returns to the Opera Idaho stage for the first time since 2008. López, a soprano who has previously appeared for Opera Idaho as Violetta in La Traviata (2016) and Gilda in Rigoletto (2014), is a rising star in the operatic world and makes her European debut this summer in Belgium in Donizetti’s other well-known comedy, Don Pasquale. One of opera’s most endearing comedies, L’elisir also features tenor Thomas Glenn (Magic Flute, 2015) as the country-bumpkin Nemorino, Christopher Job (Susannah, 2013) as the slippery Dulcamara, and Boise baritone Jason Detwiler (most recently Dr. Falke in Die Fledermaus, 2016) as the braggadocious Belcore. Opera Idaho also produced L’elisir in 1996
