About the work

Nemorino discovers “Una furtiva lagrima” in the corner of his beloved Adina's eye; a furtive tear that gives him hope that the rich landowner is not as hard-hearted as she is after all. Fortunately, the seedy quack Dulcamara sold him a love potion for his last money, which is supposed to give him irresistible charm. The charm of Donizetti's “L'elisir d'amore” lies in the juxtaposition of hilarious and tenderly romantic scenes, in the permanent alternation of perspectives and atmospheres that hold Donizetti's music together with the melodic richness of bel canto, which is the reason for the continued success of this opera.
