2010: The Elixir of Love by Donizetti

In 2010 we performed Donizetti's ingenious comedy, The Elixir of Love, with Harry Fehr as Director, Nicholas Jenkins as Musical Director, 5 amazing soloists, and a fantastic choir and orchestra made up of members of the local community and local primary schools. This has been a wonderful success and we have already had some very positive feedback. Please see below for links to reviews.

English Translation by Amanda Holden adapted for this production

'It proved a perfect vehicle for the chorus and orchestra drawn from the locality and a top-notch quintet of solo vocalists.' Simon Thomas, What's On Stage.

'The cast looked as though they were having a ball and the audience were too. It was another triumph for Blackheath's annual community event - roll on next year.' Simon Thomas, What's On Stage.
