Based on Donizetti’s much loved Opera The Elixir of Love, FiZZ! Is a fresh and imaginative production touring South East and Central Queensland Schools.
Welcome to Belcore’s Fine Foods! Nemorino (shelf stacker and trolley pusher) is a textbook nerd, desperate to gain the attention of the delightful Adina (register one) but his nerves always get in the way as does Benny Belcore (Daddy’s spoilt little boy).
When Dr Dulcamara introduces a new drink claiming to transform you into an improved version of yourself Nemo thinks his prayers have been answered. After all, you can believe anything advertised on TV, right?! Convinced FiZZ! has turned him into a cool-cat, Nemorino finds the courage to approach Adina. He soon learns that FiZZ! isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
FiZZ! pops the big issues facing little people today – self confidence, bullying, honesty and friendship. This modern adaption of Donizetti’s The Elixir of Love is presented against a dynamic multi-media backdrop and performed by three effervescent young opera performers and an on-screen cast of some of the state’s most experienced singers.
This exciting collaboration between Opera Queensland and shake & stir theatre co brings a modern take on a classic opera for students everywhere.
