Description

Large Red Glass Heart

A dramatic explosion of red, blue and gold are captured within this
dazzling, glass heart to create a dramatic, eye-catching display.

As well as being a decorative object, it serves as a handsome paperweight and a special token of one’s affection and love — a much-explored subject in The Met’s splendid production of L’Elisir d’Amore.

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.
