Sent in by Nancy Martin

Peach State Opera presents Donizetti's "Elixir of Love" on Sunday, March 1 at 3:00 p.m. in the Cole Auditorium of Georgia Perimeter College (in the Fine Arts Building CF) located at 555 N. Indian Creek Dr., Clarkston, GA 30021) performed in English. Donizetti's "Elixir of Love" on Sunday, March 1 at 3:00 p.m. in the Cole Auditorium of Georgia Perimeter College (in the Fine Arts Building CF) located at 555 N. Indian Creek Dr., Clarkston, GA 30021) performed in English.
 There will be a pre-opera talk by Carter Joseph , who does talks for The Atlanta Opera, at 2:00 p.m. Donizetti's sparkling comic opera, "The Elixir of Love" follows simple yet fervent country bumpkin, Nemorino, who is hopelessly in love with Adina, an independent and attractive yet fickle landowner.

With the dashing Sergeant Belcore also competing for Adina's affections, Nemorino turns in desperation to traveling con man, Doctor Dulcamara and his "elixir of love" (really a bottle of cheap wine). Ducamara's faux love potion causes a domino effect of hilarious plot twists and surprising romantic turns in this masterpiece of beguiling arias and intoxicating duets.

Ticket prices are $22 adult, $20 senior (over 60), $10 students (including college students with ID), $5 Georgia Perimeter College students, alumni, staff and faculty.
