“Angela Gheorghiu and Roberto Alagna help to make the Decca version of Donizetti’s sparkling comedy a winner... the set is excellent all round, with Gheorghiu an enchanting Adina, tenderly poignant in her final solo. Roberto Scaltriti as Belcore and Simone Alaimo as Dulcamara are both firm and characterful.” (The Penguin Guide)

History


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.
