"L'Elisir d'Amore" Romantic Candle

Item# 1000008924


"Elixir of Love" Romantic Candle

We were inspired by Donizetti's L'Elisir d'Amore opera about a poor peasant who falls in love with a beautiful and wealthy landowner. Unable to summon the courage to express his feelings, he buys a bottle of special elixir from a traveling medicine man. The 'elisir' works its magic and true love wins out.

The Met Opera Shop's exclusive 'elixir' includes this lovely soy candle with a soft champagne scent.  It comes in a durable cardboard box sturdy enough for mailing your own true love.  

  • Scent: Champagne
  • Soy Candle, 8 oz glass tumbler, wrapped in vintage map of NYC
  • Approximately 60 hour burn time
  • Lead free cotton wick
  • Made in New York City

 


L’Elisir d’Amore premiered at Milan’s Teatro Cannobiana in 1832. The opera is quintessential Donizetti, and one of the composer’s greatest popular successes. Nemorino, a poor peasant is in love with Adina, a wealthy landowner. Unable to summon the courage to express his feelings, he buys a bottle of special elixir from a traveling medicine man. Unbeknownst to Nemorino, the bottle holds nothing but Bordeaux wine, but the ‘Elisir’ works some magic nevertheless.
