Arts Picks: The Elixir Of Love

Arts Picks: The Elixir Of Love

Minnesota Opera kicked off 2014 with Verdi’s dark and disturbing Macbeth. This year’s season opener, Donizetti’s Elixir of Love, goes 180 degrees in the other direction. One of the most lighthearted (and popular) comedies in the repertoire, this romantic fluff-fest is about a humble peasant who is so desperate to win the heart of a rich socialite that he resorts to using a “magic” love potion. Humor and hijinks ensue. Jan. 24-Feb. 1, Minnesota Opera, 612-333-6669, mnopera.org
