Opera or Operetta

A Tuscan village, early 19th century. Inspired by the story of Tristan and Isolde, the shy young Nemorino buys potion from a quack, Dulcamara, in the hope of winning Adina. She seems to prefer Belcore, a sergeant of the garrison, and irritated by Nemorino's now apparent indifference towards her, she promises to marry Belcore immediately. Convinced that the elixir will take effect within 24 hours. Nemorino begs her to wait, but she refuses. Nemorino joins the army, using his enlisting bonus to buy another bottle of elixir. Finding himself suddenly surrounded by village girls , he presumes the elixir is working, unaware of the rumour that his uncle has died leaving him a large fortune. Adina feels intense envy and realises that it is Nemorino she really loves. Learning of his sacrifices, she redeems him from the army and the couple are married. Dulcamara capitalises on the apparent success of his elixir and does a roaring trade.


Music Donizetti. Lyrics Romani.
