L’Elisir d’Amore by Gaetano Donizetti
Librettist Felice Romani
Sung in Italian
Approximate running time 2 hrs. 41 min.
Anna Netrebko reprises her adorable Adina in Bartlett Sher’s charming production of Donizetti’s tender comedy, sharing the role with Andriana Chuchman in her Met debut. Ramón Vargas is the love-struck Nemorino, and Erwin Schrott sings the likeable quack Dulcamara, whose “magic” potion causes as many problems
as it solves.
