Opera Film L'Elisir d'amore

With dazzling star turns by the real-life husband-and-wife team of soprano Angela Gheorghiu and tenor Roberto Alagna, this  production of Donizetti’s frothy romantic comedy L’Elisir d’amore (“The Elixir of Love”) is a must for any opera fan. Their  detractors seem merely jealous of their stupendous success, because–at least on the evidence of this performance–Gheorghiu and Alagna have the voices, the acting skill, and (last but not least) the looks to sustain their international superstardom. Ably supporting the star couple are Roberto Scaltriti, Simone Alaimo, and Elena Dan; Frank Dunlop’s clever production overcomes its needless updating to the 1920s with colorful sets and costumes. In the pit and giving Donizetti’s score an agile reading are conductor Evelino Pido and the Lyon National Opera Orchestra and Chorus.
