Mar 25, 2012

Join us this Saturday, March 31st at 1 pm for the Metropolitan Opera's production of L'Elisir d'Amore. Donizetti’s melodic classic is well served by a quartet of bel canto stars: Juan Diego Flórez and Diana Damrau are the unlikely lovers, Mariusz Kwiecien the vainglorious sergeant, and Alessandro Corbelli the dispenser of the elixir.
