Notes and Editorial Reviews

L'elisir d'amore is a melodrama giocoso in two acts by the Italian composer Gaetano Donizetti. Felice Romani wrote the Italian libretto after Eugène Scribe's libretto for Daniel-François Esprit Auber's Le philtre (1831). The premiere was at the Teatro della Canobbiana, Milan on May 12, 1832. L'elisir d'amore is one of the most frequently performed of all Donizetti's operas. It appears as number twenty on Opera America's list of the 20 most-performed operas in North America. It contains the popular aria 'Una furtiva lagrima,' one of the most famous and often-recited arias in all of opera.
