Muse Machine Partnership Programs

2022-2023 Season Offerings


Presented by Dayton Opera

Dayton Opera’s Artists-in-Residence present an English version of the comic opera The Elixir of Love by Gaetano Donizetti. Sassy cowgirl Adina can’t seem to convince shy ranch hand Nemorino to declare his love for her. But when a rival love interest appears on the scene, Nemorino buys an alleged love potion to win Adina’s heart and… things do not go as expected! The Artists-in-Residence narrate the action, explaining the elements of drama and opera along the way.
