"All-American L'Elisir Charms at S.F. Conservatory...Written relatively early in his career, L’elisir was a precocious hit for Donizetti, its appeal undimmed nearly two centuries later. Like the American flag worked into the painted fields of Steven Kemp’s cunningly designed set, this production proudly waved the Conservatory’s many colors. The stars and stripes, even through some rough weather, flew clearly in sight."
