TORRINGTON — The Warner Theatre’s Met Opera Live in HD Season continues in the Nancy Marine Studio Theatre on Saturday at 12 p.m., with Donizetti’s “L’elisir D’amore. A complimentary 45-minute pre-opera lecture by Dr. Marguerite Mullée will be offered in the Studio Lobby two hours before the broadcast.
Donizetti’s comedic gem stars Pretty Yende as the spirited Adina in her debut of the role, opposite Matthew Polenzani as Nemorino, the simple peasant who falls in love with her.
Polenzani enthralled Met audiences as Nemorino in 2013 with his ravishing “Una furtive lagrima.”
Davide Luciano makes his Met debut as the role of Adina’s arrogant fiancé, Belcore, and Ildebrando D’Arcangelo sings the role of magic potion-peddling Doctor Dulcamara.
Bartlett Sher’s production is charming, with deft comedic timing but also emotionally revealing. Domingo Hindoyan conducts.
