L'Elisir d'Amore (Met DVD)

This stunning production is now available for the first time on DVD featuring Pavarotti at the peak of his prime joined by an all-star ensemble. Filmed in 1981 at the Metropolitan Opera, Luciano Pavarotti sings as Nemorino in Donizetti's comic opera.

Conducted by Nicola Rescigno, Kirk Browning's production is beautiful and entertaining. Judith Blegen sings the role of Adina and the great comic baritone, Sesto Bruscantini, plays the wily Dr. Dulcamara.

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.
