Donizetti
L'Elisir d'Amore

Donizetti’s music for his most famous comedy is as rich in honest sentiment as it is in effervescent wit. With the great Thomas Schippers on the podium, all the marvelous colors of the score come to life. Carlo Bergonzi is an ideal Nemorino, the simple guy with a seemingly impossible love—the flirtatious Adina (Roberta Peters). She only has eyes for the handsome, swaggering Sergeant Belcore (Frank Guarrera). But thanks to Dr. Dulcamara’s (Fernando Corena) magic love potion, Nemorino proves that nothing can stand in the way of a heart than remains true.
