A Gentle Comedy: Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’Amore
January 18, 2023 at 6:30 pm
Nemorino loves Adina so much he can hardly see straight, but he thinks he’s nowhere near good enough for her. Desperate to impress her, the naive fellow falls for a traveling quack’s sale pitch about a magic “love potion,” guaranteed to work in 24 hours (by which time the salesman plans to be miles away, of course). Nevertheless, all ends happily – and nobody dies (at least, not onstage)! Suzanne Martinucci, frequent panelist on the Metropolitan Opera Quiz broadcasts, presents a talk on this bel canto gem.
