1:00 – 4:00 pm Met Opera – L’Elisir d’Amore, at the Grand Theatre Frankfort, KY, 308 Saint Clair St

Pretty Yende debuts a new role at the Met with her first Adina opposite Matthew Polenzani, who enthralled Met audiences as Nemorino in 2013 with his ravishing “Una furtiva lagrima.” Bartlett Sher’s production is charming, with deft comedic timing, but also emotionally revealing. Domingo Hindoyan conducts.

Production a gift of The Monteforte Foundation, in honor of Wim Kooyker

Estimated Run Time
2 hrs 39 mins

World premiere: Teatro Cannobiana, Milan, 1832. Met premiere: January 23, 1904. L’Elisir d’Amore has been among the most consistently popular operatic comedies for almost two centuries. The story deftly combines comic archetypes with a degree of genuine character development rare in works of this type. Its ending is as much a foregone conclusion as it would be in a romantic comedy film today—the joy is in the journey, and Donizetti created one of his most instantly appealing scores for this ride.

2:00 – 3:30 pm – Tea with Princess Marie, at CastlePost, 230 Pisgah Pike, Versailles

The bowls will be decorated using the sgraffito method of carving designs into the clay. For this special Valentine’s Day-themed event, there will also be snacks and wine to share! Cost is $75 per couple. Class size is limited, so reserve your spots at (502) 353-4238.
