The Peabody Opera Theatre will present Gaetano Donizetti's The Elixir of Love (L'elisir d'amore) this week with performances Wednesday to Saturday, November 15 to 18, at 7:30 pm.

This is the Peabody directorial debut of Samuel Mungo, Peabody Opera Theatre's new managing artistic director, with guest conductor Leonardo Vordoni leading the Peabody Opera Theatre Orchestra.
