Music is made possible by WSNC donors and Piedmont Opera, presenting "Elixir of Love," where romance conjured by a magic potion is no match for the real thing in Donizetti's comic romp. March 15th, 17th and 19th, at the Stevens Center. For more information visit www.wsncradio.org.

Donizetti’s bel canto comedy, The Elixir of Love is as charming as it is funny. Nemorino is a likable but hopeless romantic who has fallen in love with the bold and quick-witted Adina. She isn’t won over by his pleas of love and things get worse when she has an offer of marriage from the self-important Sergeant Belcore. When a dubious salesman, Dulcamara, rolls into town he offers Nemorino what seems like the perfect solution – The Elixir of Love
