L’Elisir d’Amore at the Met was just delicious! Barry Banks was in as Nemorino. He was just as cute as could be in the role. He sang it fantastically as well. Angela Gheorghiu as Adina was lots of fun. I loved hearing her voice in this style.
The set looks like a children's chalk drawing and the Met chorus looked ready for Easter sunday in bright spring colors. It was like swimming in cotton candy.
This was my third Donizetti "comic" opera and it was nothing but pure fun. I love walking out of the Met amongst all of the smiling people. You can't help but cheer up with this fun.
