About Donizetti's L'Elisir D'Amore

Donizetti’s heartwarming comedy stars some of today’s most celebrated bel canto singers as the spunky landowner and the hapless peasant in search of love. Radiant sopranos Golda Schultz and Aleksandra Kurzak alternate as Adina, trading barbs and embraces with tenors Javier Camarena and Xabier Anduaga, in his Met debut, as Nemorino. Italian maestro Michele Gamba also makes his company debut conducting Bartlett Sher’s madcap staging, which features baritones Davide Luciano and Joshua Hopkins as the swaggering Sgt. Belcore and baritone Ambrogio Maestri and bass-baritone Alex Esposito as the lovable huckster Dr. Dulcamara.

World premiere: Teatro Cannobiana, Milan, 1832. L’Elisir d’Amore has been among the most consistently popular operatic comedies for almost two centuries. The story deftly combines comic archetypes with a degree of genuine character development rare in works of this type. Its ending is as much a foregone conclusion as it would be in a romantic comedy film today—the joy is in the journey, and Donizetti created one of his most instantly appealing scores for this ride.

Enchanting, Entertaining, Exquisite, Funny, Delightful

See it if Boy likes girl and tells her. Girl likes boy and pretends otherwise. A snake oil salesman brings them together on accident. It's funny af.

Don’t see it if Honestly, it's the most FUN opera I've ever seen. If you need a tragic end, this won't scratch that itch, but it's fun start to finish.

Great staging, Great singing, Great acting, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you’d like to see a light and cute opera at the Met, with beautiful staging and production. A feast to one’s eyes, ears and heart.

Don’t see it if you like drama and serious plots. Or prefer a more modern/contemporary aesthetic. Some scenes are really like a living renaissance painting

Clever, Romantic, Great staging, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if Donizetti's bel canto crowd-pleaser does just that in Bartlett Sher's elegant production Well sung esp by the men w/Anduaga in Met debut

Don’t see it if Crowd scenes esp around Dr Dulcamara's travelling salesman can often feel cramped & village action a little diffuse but nothing detrimental

Delightful, Romantic, Hilarious, Great singing, Great acting

See it if you want to see a funny opera full of love and great music, extremely well sung and acted by a believably attractive cast - just a delight!

Don’t see it if you don’t like grand opera or think real opera has to be tragic, or are a curmudgeon who hates love. Or have a phobia about weird hats
