Concert: A Lighter Note 2

Back by popular demand, Park Opera invite you to join them in another magical tour around the world of musicals, operetta and opera. Our mystery journey takes us from the heart of America, where we meet the heroine of Kiss me Kate, to the capitals of Europe, Vienna, Paris and London.

We’ll drink champagne at Count Orlovsky’s lavish party, thrill to the most romantic love scene in all opera from Puccini’s ever-popular La Bohème, and join the cockney sparrows in a lively Lambeth Walk, from Me and my Girl. Our adventure will also take us to exotic Egypt, Israel, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand and safely back to London, visiting Austria and Italy on the way.

We have a superb cast including some of Park Opera’s most popular soloists and our splendid chorus. With its rousing tunes, moving ensembles and enchanting solos, this show definitely has something for everyone.

The Elixir of Love   (L'elisir d'amore)

by Donizetti

Our next fully staged opera is The Elixir of Love, Donizetti’s most intoxicating comedy. It is a joyous opera combining touching romance and hilarious comedy with beautiful music, including the enchanting Una furtiva lagrima.

Humble village lad Nemorino adores the wealthy Adina, but her head is too full of high-flown romance and she rejects his declarations of love. Fortunately the quack ‘Doctor’ Dulcamara arrives with a ‘love potion’ to help him win her heart. Set in Italy’s sun-drenched countryside, this is deservedly one of the most loved of all operas.
