Description Director Simon Phillips quirky rethink of Donizetti's delightful comedy transposes the action from rural Italy to an outback station in 1915 Australia. Shy Nemorino is besotted with beautiful Adina, but he's going to need some help to get her attention. Enter Dr Dulcamara with his sure-fire, never fails love potion which, if it works, could be the answer to Nemorino's woes... i.e..BIG IF!
