Why Adina is a very modern operatic heroine
'Adina is an unusual character in the soprano repertory,' says Lucy Crowe, who plays the role. 'It's quite a modern character. It's not often, back in the day, that you'd find a woman being independent - who isn't a servant - that can do what she pleases and do it the way she does in such a sassy way; bossing the men around and using them as her playtoys.'
Have an exclusive glimpse of rehearsals and watch Lucy explain why Adina is one of her favourite operatic characters in the history of the art form:
L'elisir d'amore runs from 27 May–22 June 2017. Tickets are still available.
