L’elisir d’amore, in this edition of the Maggio, highlights the comical aspects of the opera, transforming the story of Nemorino, Adina and Dulcamara into a 1970s American Tale, where the poor Nemorino is a young man who has to go around in a yellow chicken costume to advertise Adina’s Road Food. Provincial life is stirred up by the arrival of Dulcamara in a 1960s red Buick: a seasoned and friendly rascal, he is the typical door-to-door salesman. The uptight Belcore is on horseback, a blend of a stereotypical fat Irish policeman and a training sergeant in the Marines, complete with Ray-Ban.
