My time here in Oslo has come to an end and what better way for my trip to go out with a bang than with this charming production of Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’Amore live from the Met headed by Maestro Domingo Hindoyan and starring Pretty Yende and Matthew Polenzani as the iconic lovers, Adina and Nemorino. This also marks the successful debut of one baryton noble, Monsieur Davide Luciano as Belcore. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have come to this. The phenomenal Bel Canto diva, Jessica Pratt, has made her role debut as Adina, as she is joined by her Nemorino, the stylishly fabulous, Pavol Breslik. In addition to them, they are joined by other awesome Italianate singers, the virile low comic baritone, Signore Paolo Bordogna as Belcore, the charismatic comic baritone, Signore Roberto di Candia as Il Dottore Dulcamara, and the stellar rising young light lyric soprano, Señorita Mercedes Gancedo as Giannetta. How does this extraordinary, noble, masterful, and grand troupe of megastars fare? Find out in this review and let me know your opinions as well.
