The Opera Company of Middlebury brings its critically acclaimed production of Donizetti’s delightful comedy to Chandler. L’elisir d’amore is a frothy romantic opera that tells the story of a con artist who convinces a town that his strange concoction can cure any ill — and can even make other people fall in love with you. The opera was originally set in an ancient, rustic locale, but the Opera Company of Middlebury places it in a more sophisticated setting: a Gatsby-esque bar in the Roaring Twenties. Tucked into the laughter is one of the most famous tenor arias of all time — the haunting ballad “Una furtiva lagrina.”
