The 15th Paphos Opera festival



The 15th Paphos Opera festival

The 15th Paphos Opera festival is taking place at the Paphos castle on 6th, 7th, and 8th September. The piece chosen for this year is Gaetano Donizetti’s “L’Elisir D’Amore” (translated: The Elixir of Love). It will be jointly executed by the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra and the Opera Future Verona.

The Paphos Aphrodite festival is in its 15th year now, Paphos being the only city in Cyprus where Opera is performed. Well know orchestras are invited from throughout Europe and the event attracts many visitors from across the Mediterranean region.

Summary: Written in haste, L’elisir d’amore was the most often performed opera in Italy between 1838 and 1848 and has remained continually in the international opera repertory. Today it is one of the most frequently performed of all Donizetti’s operas: it appears as number 12 on the Operabase list of the most-performed operas worldwide. There are a large number of recordings. It contains the popular tenoraria “Una furtiva lagrima ,” a romanza that has a considerable performance history in the concert hall.
