The Met Opera Live in HD: L'Elisir d'Amore

L'Elisir d'Amore

Gaetano Donizetti

Estimated Run Time 2hrs 39mins

A romantic, lighthearted comedy about a lovelorn misfit who purchases of a spurious bottle of love potion from a mischievous travelling salesman to win his true love’s heart. Believing the elixir has given him the true power of desire, amusing twists unfold that ultimately lead to everlasting love.

Pretty Yende debuts a new role at the Met with her first Adina opposite Matthew Polenzani, who enthralled Met audiences as Nemorino in 2013 with his ravishing “Una furtiva lagrima.” Bartlett Sher’s production is charming, with deft comedic timing, but also emotionally revealing. Domingo Hindoyan conducts.

Sung in Italian
