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.

Don't miss it. The singers are beautiful. The music and singing was phenomenal. No wonder that the matinee audience was screaming.
