"..this is well worth hearing, with a splendid cast who are caught at their best in a performance which wholly captures the spirit of this most delightful of operas." Recording of the Month MusicWeb May 2012
Thomas Schippers leads a superlative cast in one of Donizetti's most beloved comic operas
The great Carlo Bergonzi is Nemorino, the everyman villager smitten with the beautiful and beguiling Adina of Roberta Peters, who exudes such charm and vivacity in the role that it's easy to feel Nemorino's pain as his advances are rebuffed
Also starring Frank Guarrera as Sergeant Belcore and Fernando Corena, who provides great comic touches as Dr. Dulcamara, a traveling charlatan who provides the magic elixir that wins the day for Nemorino
2 CDs taken from the March 5, 1966 live performance
