Notes and Editorial Reviews

Filmed in 1981, live from the Metropolitan Opera, Luciano Pavarotti sings Nemorino in Donizetti's comic opera. This one of his Pavarotti's most famous roles and here he sings it as the peak of his prime joined by an all-star ensemble.

Kirk Browning's production is traditional and entertaining. Judith Blegen sings the role of Adina and the great comic baritone, Sesto Bruscantini, plays the wily Dr Dulcamara. Nicola Rescigno conducts.

 le elisir de amore October 10, 2013 By fernando ferrer (san juan, PR) See All My Reviews "We had tickets to see this opera in our hometown so we wanted to see it in video prior to the presentation, It came on time and we enjoyed it very much. The quality of the video is remarkable. I had the VHS format and it was deteriorated. Congratulations I will have you in mind when buying more videos." Report Abuse
