Donizetti: L'Elisir d'amore / Rolando Villazon, Anna Netrebko, Leo Nucci, Ildebrando D'Arcangelo. Vienna State Opera, Alfred Eschwé [Blu-ray]

Notes & Reviews:

Theatrical magic between Rolando Villazón and Anna Netrebko in Donizetti's delightful and ever-popular comedy 'L'elisir d amore'. Rolando Villazón as Nemorino exhibits a real gift for comic acting, manipulating his rubber face into dozens of hilarious poses, flawlessly turning stock comic gestures into laugh-out-loud moments, and even juggling apples with the panache of a circus performer. More important, he uses his lyric tenor to sing the part with impressive subtlety, suggesting Nemorino's desperation while singing of his love for Adina. His big show-stopper, "Una furtiva lagrima," features melting pianissimos and a breathtaking decrescendo in its final phrase. Netrebko's Adina is every bit as good, with deft acting and a lovely lyric soprano voice that makes you understand why she's the only girl for Nemorino.
