Donizetti: L'elisir d'amore

Caterina Sala (Adina), Javier Camarena (Nemorino), Florian Sempey (Belcore), Roberto Frontali (Dulcamara)

Orchestra Gli Originali, Coro Donizetti Opera, Riccardo Frizza, Frederic Wake-Walker

Donizetti’s L’elisir d’amore is a melodrama giocoso in two acts and has remained one of the world’s most popular and often performed operas. Nemorino is in love with Adina, who is indifferent, but eventually falls for him, helped by the huckster Dr Dulcamara’s elixir (in reality, cheap red wine). This performance restores cuts and is heard in full, as Donizetti intended, played on original instruments of the time at the original pitch. This allows one to hear more fully how he turned a traditional opera buffa into a masterpiece of characterisation and theatrical power. The complete version performed with original instruments and new staging directed by Frederic Wake-Walker with a stellar cast led by Caterina Sala and Javier Camarena.

If this DVD will interest the Donizetti specialist, it also has much to offer to the opera neophyte...The acting is genial and the vocal casting luxurious, featuring singers at the forefront of this repertoire today. Star tenor Javier Camarena gives a winning, thoughtfully characterised performance as Nemorino, the voice light, lyrical and spontaneous.
