ADDAMS FAMILY

The Addams Family, Broadway’s smash hit musical comedy, brings the deliriously delightful world of Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Grandma, Wednesday, Pugsley and Lurch to spooky and spectacular life. Based on the bizarre and beloved family of characters created by legendary cartoonist Charles Addams, The Addams Family features an original story and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. A man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, she confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother.

ELIXIR OF LOVE

Donizetti’s fanciful and intensely human comic opera Eliixir of Love (L’Ellisir D’ Amore) is vividly realized in the story of Dr. Dulcamara a travelling charlatan who turns a provincial village topsy-turvy. Dulcamara convinces young swain Belcori to purchase a love potion, the better to win the heart of the winsome Adina. One wacky situation leads to another, culminating in a joyous ensemble number. “Elixir” is Donizetti’s most frequently performed opera and was the lead opera in the current Metropolitan Opera’s current season. The Act 2 aria, Una furtiva lagrima, made famous by Luciano Pavorotti, is a show stopper.
