Sung in Italian with projected English supertitles.

This charming comedy, filled with glorious tunes, tell the story of the young, impressionable Nemorino who is in love with Adina.  Sadly, Adina has eyes for the overly-confident solider Belcore.  Along comes the fraudulent Dr. Dulcamara who sells Nemorino an “Elixir of Love,” which is nothing more that cheap wine.  But Nemorino is tricked into thinking that
the potion actually works, and sets out to win Adina’s attention in hilarious fashion.
