Donizetti: L'elisir d'amore
L'elisir d'amore was first performed in 1832. This opera by Donizetti is very popular today. L'elisir d'amore is very funny at times, especially the scenes with the Doctor trying to sell his fake love potion to Nemorino. Rolando Villazón and Anna Netrebko both have great singing and the orchestra plays very well throughout. L'elisir d'amore has the popular aria "Una furtiva lagrima", sung by Rolando Villazón and is encored. This opera was performed in 2005 at the Vienna State Opera in Vienna, Austria.
