This production of Donizetti’s L'Elisir d'Amore marks Rolando Villazón’s debut as stage director in addition to performing the main role of Nemorino. Staged for the Baden-Baden Festspielhaus, the cast also includes Miah Persson, Ildebrando D'Arcangelo, and Regula Mühlemann. Bonus: A ‘behind the scenes’ video filmed by Friedemann Hottenbacher.


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.
