My Year of Opera: 3 – L’elisir d’amore

Tonight, PBS is showing Donizetti’s L’elisir d’amore on Great Performances. I really like this opera. It is fun, light, and tuneful. I’ve seen it before and had it on VHS for a few years (probably from another Great Performances broadcast). Instead of blogging about it, I’m going to live-tweet the event. You can follow if you want. The game starts at 9 PM EST. I am @jaybatzner on Twitter and I plan on using the hashtag #elixir for the duration. This is my first live-tweet thing, so forgive me in advance…

    I put it on the DVR last night and I’m enjoying it as I write. I have the old VHS Met production (Pavarotti) now copied to DVD. Comparing the two, I think this one is better only because I can imagine falling in love with the tenor. Great as Pavarotti was, for me he’s not quite believable in a romantic part. Silly of me, I know.

    Glad you’re enjoying it. It’s one of my favorites.
