Osher Lifelong Learning Institute and UC San Diego team up once again to host a special conversation about the social, political, and economic future of San Diego.
A recent episode of the Osher UCSD Distinguished Lecture Series follows Jerry Sanders through a much needed discussion on the health and welfare of San Diego. Now serving as CEO of the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, Sanders possesses a background of distinguished positions, such as the former San Diego Mayor ’05-’12 and Chief of Police ’93-’99. His culmination of knowledge and experience make him abundantly qualified to examine and advise on the growth of America’s finest city. He even has the audience roaring with humorous tales from his long career along the way.

In this episode of OperaTalk, Dr. Nicolas Reveles discusses Gaetano Donizetti’s comedic opera “The Elixir of Love” or “L’elisir d’amore,” in which a con artist convinces villagers that a bottle of wine is a love potion.
What better place to discus the powerful effects of wine than at a winery? Reveles visits the beautiful Hacienda de las Rosas Winery to illustrate just how enchanting wine can be.
Donizetti had written hit operas before, including “Anna Bolena,” an historic opera about one of King Henry the 8th’s wives. But Reveles says that none came close to the success of “The Elixir of Love.”
Donizetti was in the midst of writing four operas in one year when he was commissioned to write a new one for the Teatro Cane Bianco in Milan. He wrote “The Elixir of Love” in just six weeks and it gained such popularity, it was the most performed opera in Italy between 1838 and 1848.
Learn more about this classic opera in “The Elixir of Love-San Diego OperaTalk.”
