Anna Netrebko reprises her adorable Adina in Bartlett Sher’s charming production of Donizetti’s tender comedy, sharing the role with Andriana Chuchman in her Met debut. Ramón Vargas is the love-struck Nemorino, and Erwin Schrott sings the likeable quack Dulcamara, whose “magic” potion causes as many problems
as it solves.
Anna Netrebko "seemed right in the zone, singing with plushness, brilliance and spontaneity. She truly inhabited the role of Adina... Her singing was exceptional for its richness, body and poignancy, as well as that indefinable quality of vocal charisma she has always had." —New York Times
"Ramón Vargas brings a burnished voice and bumptious charm to the role of the shy peasant Nemorino." —New York Times
As Dulcamara, "the robust bass-baritone Erwin Schrott stole every scene he was in." —New York Times
