Donizetti
L'Elisir d'Amore

“Enchanting” is the word for this one. A charming and pert Bidú Sayão (Adina) has been ignoring poor Nemorino (Ferruccio Tagliavini), forcing him to take desperate measures to win her love. Salvatore Baccaloni is Dr. Dulcamara, a wily snake-oil salesman with a bogus “elixir of love” that he promises will do the trick. It eventually works, of course, but not before the sensational cast has made us laugh and touched our hearts.
