L'Elisir d'Amore

Having seen a different Met production of L'Elisir on HDTV several years ago, I didn't quite know what to expect. Anna Netrebko is the character of Adina, giving Nemorino a bad time in the first act, and slowly but surely, letting is be known that she always loved him. Polenzani, as Nemorino, was the much anticipated "Lil Abner" type. But with the beautiful tenor voice necessary to sing "Una furtiva lagrima," as beautifully as he did. Dr. Dulcamara was great with his big bass voice. Chorus and orchestra were outstanding as usual. Yes, I would add it to my DVD collection.

What's not to like!! Anna Netrebko was absolutely marvelous. She and Mariusz Kwiecien were a great couple. Not only were their performances top notch, but they truly enjoyed working with each other. You can see it in their eyes. Two great professionals enjoying having fun doing want they do best. The rest of the cast was more than excellent. A terrific performance and worth every penny of admission. Would go to see this again.
