PASSION & POTIONS - Monday, January 25

The Lumière Supper Club and db Bistro Moderne become the scene of a four-course, consecutive act performance of a lifetime, in benefit of Vancouver Opera Programs.


In the World of Opera, Passion & Potions Abound

Mephistopheles aids Faust with a potion made to make him young and appealing to the virtuous Marguierite. Tristan and Isolde unite over shared love potion rather than the poisoned drink that each had anticipated. Friar Lawrence provides Juliet with a vial that furthers her plan for spending eternity with her beloved Romeo. And then there is, of course, the infamous Elixir of Love where Dr. Dulcamara is overcome as the curtain falls with everyone wanting a bottle of his celebrated concoction. Whether the intent is pure or evil, in the world of opera just a drop is all you need.
