Metropolitan Opera

L’Elisir d’Amore by Gaetano Donizetti
Libretto by Felice Romani

Sung in Italian
Approximate running time:  2 hrs. 41 min., including 1 intermission

elixerAnna Netrebko and Matthew Polenzani star in one of the greatest comic gems in opera, as the fickle Adina and her besotted Nemorino. Bartlett Sher, whose previous productions of Il Barbiere di SivigliaLe Comte Ory, and Les Contes d’Hoffmann have delighted Met audiences, guides this lively staging, where surface charm will meet with real emotion. Mariusz Kwiecien is the blustery sergeant Belcore and Erwin Schrott sings Dulcamara, the loveable quack and dispenser of the elixir. Maurizio Benini conducts.
