A community opera group is marking its 25th year with an historic production.

The North Norfolk Chamber Opera's version of the Elixir of Love by Donizetti starts tonight and ends this Saturday, April 18.

It will be performed at the Auden Theatre in Holt at 7.30pm.

The show includes an all-adult cast of about 20 performers who will be accompanied by a small orchestra.

The 200-year-old play has been translated into English by international conductor David Parry, from Antingham.

It is about a lovelorn man who takes an elixir to gain courage and win the heart of his true love.

The production is set in modern dress and the musical director is group chairman Maggi Warren.
