Description

Our main-stage season at The Grand begins with Donizetti’s charming L’Elisir d’amore (The Elixir of Love).  L’Elisir was last performed at OperaDelaware in 1979 - at this time, the role of Nemorino was a calling card for the great Luciano Pavarotti (sadly, we couldn’t afford him!)  This year, we bring you young William Davenport - a tenor destined for great things, who is routinely compared to the late, great Pavarotti. 

 “...William Davenport unleashed a tenor voice that has made great strides since his successful Philadelphia debut in Tales of Hoffman in 2011, when I commented that he showed “innocence and lyricism.” Now he is coming to resemble the freedom and power of Luciano Pavarotti, whether your eyes are open or shut.”        - Steve Cohen, Broad Street Review

 

Sharin Apostolou sings the role of Adina, Metropolitan Opera Baritone Trevor Scheunemann sings Belcore, and basso-buffo Stephen Eisenhard will delight us with the quack Dr. Dulcamara.  Maestro Jerome Shannon conducts, and Dean Anthony will direct this production - with gorgeous traditional sets and costumes from the Sarasota Opera.  The Elixir is the cure for what ails you!  Performances are October 11 at 8pm* and October 13 at 2pm
