"Ms. Yende sings beautifully from the start, gaining warmth and depth as nonchalance and flirtatiousness develops into love. She deftly executes the acrobatics at the end, with joyous, tumbling high roulades." — New York Times
Fathom Events and The Met: Live in HD present a broadcast of Puccini’s L’Elisir d’Amore.
Pretty Yende debuts a new role at the Met as the feisty Adina, opposite Matthew Polenzani, who enthralled Met audiences as Nemorino in 2013 with his ravishing “Una furtiva lagrima.” Bartlett Sher’s production is charming, with deft comedic timing, but also emotionally revealing. Domingo Hindoyan conducts.
Run time: 3 hrs.
"Polenzani leaves audiences drunk on love." - Opera Wire
