Elixir of Love

Multimedia by Richard Repp

In the Spring of 1995 I was in the cast of Illinois State University's Presentation of Gaetano Donizetti's Elixir of Love. To prepare for the role I created these multimedia presentations. The programs were written on the Macintosh platform in two versions, an Authorware and a Powerpoint version. These presentations are no longer available, but the media from them are linked below.
