On Sunday afternoon, April 18th 2020, The Amsterdam Opera Choir will perform Gaetano Donizetti’s complete opera l ’Elisir d’Amore in concertant form with orchestra and soloists in the Grote Zaal of the Beurs van Berlage. The Grote Zaal is a beautiful space with 700 seats, sufficient to accommodate all permanent and new listeners / visitors.
Choir and soloists will be accompanied by The Promenade Orchestra and the whole will be conducted by conductor Ago Verdonschot.
L’elisir d’amore is an attractive opera in two acts. The figures of this bittersweet comedy have their origins in the opera buffa and have been refined by Donizetti. The choir parts are also very interesting. Thanks to the happy ending, this opera also meets the festive atmosphere of an anniversary concert.
