One of the best Elixirs that I have seen. Staging was practical and the singers were well cast and wonderful. This opera is not too long, and well set for the beginning Opera goer. I recommend it highly. A long-time opera fan.

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.

L'Elisir d'Amore was one of the best of performances from HD-LIVE @ THE MET. The whole series has been wonderful but this was off-the-charts excellent.

Having seen Luciano Pavarotti in this opera several times, I was not sure I could really enjoy it without him. However, this was a fabulous production, in every way. Anna Natrebko was amazing, positively in fabulous voice. The baritone and tenor were great as well. And I loved the production. Beautifully sung but also beautifully directed with great sensitivity. Magnifique!
