The Elixir of Love - Vegas Style

Donizetti originally set his melodramatic opera, "The Elixir of Love" in a small village in the Basque Country. UNLV Opera will be performing the opera but with a twist. It's set right here in Las Vegas in an upscale bar. The peasant becomes a casino maintenance man but they still sing the great love duets that have kept this opera in the repertoire.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
