For the first time we were invited to go to the dress rehearsal of L’Elisir d’Amore which was preformed as part of the Lismore Opera Festival. It took place late in the evening in Lismore Castle. It was an interesting way to tell a story. The main lady, the Prima Donna, had two men in love with her. In the end she chooses the poorer man who is actually rich as he inherits money he never knew about. There was some funny scenes. Although we did not understand it all, as most of it was sung in Italian, we got the gist of the story. The little orchestra played really well. It was a great night out! All in all we enjoyed it.
