Fort Worth Opera’s annual festival kicks off this weekend and we have a pair of tickets to Sunday’s matinee performance of The Elixir of Love.
This is a great comic opera about a guy named Nemorino whose in love with a gal named Adina, but can’t find the guts to tell her. Meanwhile, Belcore asks Adina – a popular girl – to marry him. Poor Nemorino tries to use a “love potion,” which really is just cheap wine gussied up, to win Adina. Perhaps this sounds familiar. Perhaps it sounds like Friday night. Needless to say, just like in life, things get a little complicated before they’re resolved.
These are orchestra seats (nice!) at Bass Hall and go to the first to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’ll be introducing the pre-performance talk at 1, so if you win – or if you’re going anyway – please stop by and say hello.
UPDATE: Tickets are gone! But check back next week….
