Description
On May 12 in 1832, the Milan premiere of Donizetti's comic opera L'elisir d'amore (The Elixir of Love) was an unqualified success; it resulted in a series of 32 sold-out houses and even inspired Richard Wagner in 1840 to produce a piano score of the work (not surprisingly, given the exquisite beauty of arias like "Una furtive lagrima"). This live performance was captured at the outdoor Sferisterio Arena at Macerata, built in the 1830s and seating nearly 6,000 avid opera lovers.

"Muus paces the music with delicacy, allowing his singers to phrase the music with character…. The surprise of the casting is Erwin Schrott as Dulcamara. He is as far from the usual old buffer buffa as one can get, vocally as well as in appearance. With thigh high boots, a wisp of chest hair on view and firm abdominals, one can see that this Dulcamara fancies his chance with Adina who looks as though she might be tempted as he all but pinches her bottom. Vocally, his bass baritone is as solid as his abs, rich, fluent and full of tease and fun…. His portrayal puts a whole new perspective to the unfolding story and Dulcamara's pre-departure sales pitch in the conclusion."—MusicWeb Internationa
