Melodramma giocoso in two acts, L’elisir d’amore is an opera buffa with music by Gaetano Donizetti and libretto by Felice Romani, based on Eugène Scribe’s text Le philtre for Daniel Auber’s opera, premiered on 12 May 1832 at Teatro delle Canobbiana en Milán.
L’elisir d’amore is Donizetti’s most famous comic opera thanks to its unforgettable melodies, like ‘Una furtiva lacrima’ and a lively plot in which the love affair of beautiful Adina and the naive Nemorino goes ahead thanks to the improbable help of trickster Dulcamara.
Stage director Pablo Maritano has taken care of the stage design of this production that transports us to the golden age of film. A fantasy world through different film sets of the late 1920s.
