L’Elisir d’amore LIVE from the Metropolitan Opera

The January 16 and February 10 performances of Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’Amore at the Metropolitan Opera, with Pretty Yende starring as Adina alongside Matthew Polenzani as Nemorino are scheduled for broadcast on Met Opera Radio.

The performance on February 10 is also to be broadcast LIVE in HD in cinemas all over the world.

Pretty Yende will be making her first appearance as Adina at the Metropolitan Opera after having debuted the role at Covent Garden when she made her house debut and subsequently singing it at the Berlin Staatsoper, to great critical acclaim. Bachtrack said of her Royal Opera House debut: “Her sunny personality is matched by a sunny voice, a bright tone with pinpoint accuracy in the fioritura (literally “flowering”) of her vocal lines.”
