Pittsburgh Opera Concludes 2017-18 Season With ‘L’Elisir D’Amore’

The Pittsburgh Opera concludes its 2017-18 season with Donizetti’s “L’Elisir d’Amore.”

Donizetti’s 36th opera, and one of his most popular, is set to star Russian soprano Ekaterina Siurina and American tenor Dimitri Pittas in the lead roles. Zachary Nelsons will sing Belcore while Paolo Pecchioli will portray Dulcamara.

The new production by Daniel Slater, which was presented at the Houston Grand Opera, will present a 1950s-style production that will showcase a Fellini-esque vision. Christian Capocaccia is set to conduct.

The production will be showcased four times from April 21 to 29, 2018.

This season the Pittsburgh Opera showcased a variety of operas including “Tosca,” “Moby Dick and “The Marriage of Figaro.” The 2018-19 season opens with “Madama Butterfly” and is set to showcase “Glory Denied,” “La Bohème,” and “Don Pasquale,” among others.
