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.
