Take a front-row seat for this new production of Donizetti’s opera, starring Anna Netrebko as Adina.
Anna Netrebko and Matthew Polenzani, as the fickle Adina and her besotted Nemorino, star in Bartlett Sher’s new production of one of the great comic gems in opera. Mariusz Kwiecien is the blustery sergeant Belcore and Ambrogio Maestri is Dulcamara, the loveable quack and dispenser of the elixir. Maurizio Benini conducts. GREAT PERFORMANCES AT THE MET: L’Elisir d’Amore airs Sunday, January 20, 2013 at 2 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cable 11 and 1011).
