Last performance of “L’elisir d’amore” by Donizetti
On Saturday, May 18, „L’elisir d’amore“ by Donizetti will have its last performance of the season. Starring Mehis Tiits (Nemorina), Kristel Pärtna (Adina), Aare Saal (Belcore), Rauno Elp (Dulcamara) and Olga Zaitseva (Giannetta). Conductor Lauri Sirp.
Written in a few weeks’ time, “L’elisir d’amore” has become one of the most frequently performed of all Gaetano Donizetti’s operas together with “Lucia di Lammermoor” (1835) and “Don Pasquale” (1843). It combines a touching love story and hilarious comedy with lightness, sparkling wit and beautiful music, including the well-loved tenor aria “Una furtiva lagrima”.
