L'elisir d'amore: explore with Alexandra
L'elisir d'amore (Donizetti), 2009 • 11m
Donizetti's blissful big-hearted L'elisir d'amore throws an operatic spanner in the works, proving that comedy can be romantic too with a capital 'R' as well as a small one.
Alexandra Coghlan talks to musicologist Dr Flora Willson and novelist Amanda Craig to explore the opera.
