I think Donizetti is my favorite opera composer. I know that Lucia de Lammermore is my very favorite opera, and I've also enjoyed the recent Donizetti comedies Opera Memphis has put on. Last night was a performance of Elixir of Love, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. They set it as a western in a frontier town, and here's the sketch of the set I did before the curtain and during the interval. It's fun to do a little drawing at a live performance, although GPAC (the theis darker than the Orpheum, so I didn't sketch during the opera itself this time around.
