Donizetti
L'Elisir d'Amore

This broadcast recording features superstar tenor Luciano Pavarotti in his prime in one of his most beloved roles—he stars as Nemorino, a simple, good-natured guy who loves the beautiful and wealthy Adina (Judith Blegen). Unfortunately she is a bit of a flirt and takes his affection for granted. But she doesn’t reckon on the power of true love, or the surprising effects of Dr. Dulcamara’s love elixir. Fernando Corena sings the wily quack, and Mario Sereni is the handsome, preening Sergeant Belcore.
