Lelisir Damore Liceu Critical Thinking

Mario Gas revisits the Liceu with his production of Donizetti's fun-filled, brilliant work

One of the most delightful comic, and at the same time romantic, operas in the history of the genre. Nemorino is a naive lad who still believes in love potions to win over the heart of his beloved Adina. She makes him suffer until she herself succumbs and falls in love with him. Affection and mischief come together courtesy of the fresh, creative music by Donizetti, the last major proponent of the Italian comic opera.

The Liceu stages one of its most successful productions from recent seasons. Mario Gas places the original action in fascist Rome, with fond memories of neo-realist cinema. A comedy that is suitable for all audiences, with the added attraction of Slovakian tenor Pavol Breslik in the role of Nemorino together with three more stars, Australian soprano Jessica Pratt as Adina, baritone Paolo Bordogna, and buffo veteran Roberto de Candia in the role of  Dulcamara.
