|Adina (Elisir)||Lisette Oropesa|
|Dr Dulcamara||Gabriele Viviani|
It is a lost village in the Italian countryside. An inn on a road that sometimes crosses a dog. Nothing else. So goes the staging of Laurent Pelly. A landscape so desert that the droning arrival of Dr. Dulcamara is a sensation. And for good reason. It is said that he is the inventor of a mysterious love potion.
At the opera, the love potions sometimes provoke terrible tragedies. They can also be pretexts for this tender comedy where sergeant Belcore and timid Nemorino fight over the heart of beautiful Adina. The stage is set. In front of the music - which Donizetti composed in fourteen days!
