This was another extremely impressive production by Operantics, dazzlingly sung...a terrific showcase of wonderful young opera talent.
In an idyllic mountain village, the villagers are preparing the wedding celebrations for Amina and Elvino. But complications arise with the arrival of a mysterious stranger, and Lisa, Elvino's spurned former lover, scheming in the background.
When Amina is discovered in the bedchamber of the visiting nobleman the next morning, protesting her innocence, the village is turned upside down. Can she prove her innocence?
