Arts Calendar: Theater
The Opera Company of Middlebury ends its 15th season with a Vermont Touring production of Donizetti’s famous comedy, L’Elisir d’Amore (The Elixir of Love). The fizzy romantic opera tells the story of a con artist who convinces a town that his strange concoction can cure any ill — and can even make other people fall in love with you. Tucked into the laughter is one of the most famous tenor arias of all time, the haunting ballad “Una furtiva lagrima.”
Oct. 10 at 7:30. There will be a pre-performance talk by Douglas Anderson at Memorial Baptist Church at 6:30. Tickets are orchestra: $40 and balcony: $50

Unfortunately, Leonard’s alibi depends on the testimony of his callous wife, Romaine — who, after the discovery of a legal loophole, makes the shocking decision to appear in court against him.

Fresh from Broadway and the West End, the regional premiere of this stunning new play will captivate audiences. Inspired by the true story of the back-channel talks, unlikely friendships, and quiet heroics that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords between the Israelis and the Palestinians, Oslo is a deeply personal story set against a complex historical canvas, a story about the individuals behind world history and their all too human ambitions. Oslo is “thrilling, a colossus,” raves Ben Brantley of The New York Times. At this cultural moment when finding common ground is paramount, “Oslo gives us hope” (Joe Dziemianowicz, Daily News).
