I will be playing the lead role of Nemorino (February 25th and 27th), a young naive peasant boy, in love with his friend and local rich  landowner, Adina. Typical operatic comedy twists and turns occur complete with a love potion (Chianti), a swindling doctor, a scheming military captain and lively townspeople.  Don't miss this amazing operatic staple!!!
