Donizetti: L'elisir d'amore Blu-ray (Glyndebourne)

Acclaimed Italian conductor Maurizio Benini makes his Glyndebourne debut in Donizetti’s intoxicating and deeply touching opera, whose fast-moving comic story unfolds the romantic rivalry between penniless farm hand Nemorino and bumptious soldier Belcore, both vying for the love of Adina. Will the bogus Dr Dulcamara’s potion – the elixir of love – help Nemorino win her heart?
