In International, Opera, Reviews by Simon ParrisLeave a Comment

The bel canto pleasure of L’Elisir d’Amore is significantly enhanced by electric chemistry between its romantic leads. Having opened the Met’s 2012 season, this new production of L’Elisir d’Amore retains a fresh, airy feel. Although director Bartlett Sher and team usually work to freshen and find new angles on a classic work, their work here is ultra-traditional, almost conservative, and the result is visually gorgeous.
