Metropolitan Opera Broadcast: :Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’Amore

Seeing and hearing an opera on a big screen is a powerful experience, in some ways more exciting than a live performance.  Recommended for mature adults and others.

We will decide to have a meal afterwards, depending on attendees' desires.


L’Elisir d’Amore is my favorite of Donizetti’s fabulous comic operas.  Nemorino, a local wuss, fancies the village beauty and flirt, Adina.  When the soldiers come to town, Adina thinks the handsome lieutenant is her man.  But Dulcamara, traveling quack and con-man, rolls by with a love potion.  Nemorino shows he’s not too bright and consumes a lot of the potion.  Just in time a rich uncle dies, Adina chooses jilts the officer at the alter, Nemorino gets the girls, and we can wonder if the magic potion was Dulcamara’s grappa or the uncle’s fortune. 


The cast includes Matthew Polanzani as Nemorino and Pretty Yende as Adina.


Next up:  La Boheme (Feb 24), Semiramide (Mar 10), Cosi fanTutte (Mar 31), Luisa Miller (April 14), Cendrillon (April 28).
