The Elixir of Love

The Elixir of Love

August 1, 2015 Composed by Gaetano Donizetti

Nemorino the cowpoke is snake-bit in love. High-falutin' Adina laughs off his every attempt to rustle up some romance with her, especially after gaudy Sergeant Belcore rides into town. Desperate, Nemorino enlists in Belcore's battalion and invests his bonus in a large dose of Doctor Dulcamara's "Elixir of Love". Giddy with hope, Nemorino suddenly seems younger, handsomer, and richer to all the village girls. Even Adina starts responding to his homespun charm, so she packs Belcore off to conquer other hearts and pledges her own to Nemorino.
