The Elixir of Love, An opera in Italian and English, written by Gaetano Donizetti

In a small village, somewhere in Italy, a poor young man named Nemorino is hopelessly in love with the capricious and unobtainable Adina.
He tries his luck in many ways to woo the young vineyard owner, but has a strong rival to contend with. 
Will the magic ‘Elixir’ work to help his plight? With no money, or confidence it seems Nemorino has no hope to win the hand of Adina, and so entrusts his chance of romance to a dodgy travelling alchemist who provides just the thing!

This ‘bubbly’ romantic comedy opera will be sure to tick all the boxes for a superb evening of music, and theatre. 
Starring the handsome Jiacheng Ding as Nemorino (returning after the hit show Gianni Schicchi from 2022) and the sparkling Amelia Price in her debut role as Adina Co-Opera return to Griffith, with Stephanie Acraman as Director to bring another stunning opera with broad appeal!

About Piccolo Family Farm:

The Piccolo Farm is a fully functional farm that supplies Limone Dining with fresh produce daily. Sitting on 20 acres just outside of Griffith, the farm produces the majority of our herbs, garnishes, fruits and vegetables. We use sustainable farming practices, with all of our produce harvested by hand and free of chemicals and pesticides. The property features a citrus orchard, vineyard, vegetable and herb garden, and 2 acres of beautiful gardens with unique outbuildings.

About Limone Dining:

Limone Dining is a regional restaurant set in beautiful Griffith. Limone was constructed almost entirely from recycled materials, reclaimed from within the local area. Our unique site and menu is a reflection of the region in which we live; an area of abundant produce, supported by a rich European heritage. We showcase the ample local and seasonal produce with an ever-evolving menu of fine food.
