Opera · Elisir D'amore de Gaetano Donizetti
Nature and art, poetry and prose, seriousness and joke, memory and foreboding, life and death come together and are confused in the romantic genre. And when it comes to a comic speech, the confrontation between "the masculine and the feminine" is added to that series of binomials. L'elisir d'amore is a love story
that tells us about the difficulty that men and women have to communicate. But above all, it is a comedy that highlights on the stage millenarian topics of both sexes: Nemorino's youthful affliction and insecurity, the pragmatism and the feminine frivolity of Adina. The special thing about Donizetti's work is that throughout the
discourse those topics are diluted, intermingled and transferred between the characters thanks to the transforming force of love and not a deception or any other fortuitous event. Of course, the recurring presence of wine does its part, encouraging the monotony of life. However, as in any romantic comedy that
Precie, the true elixir that puts things in their place is jealousy, the most selfish face of the passionate love.
A theme as universal as this and the giocosa quality of the libretto make the love filter motif easily separated from the original spatio-temporal location.
Three characters tell the story of the magical Elisir with simplicity and humor, accompanied by the piano.
An opera for the whole family.
