It is popular among tenors, and is known as a romanza, which is as its name suggests, a romantic aria. Written in the bel canto style, which put the emphasis on the singer's voice rather than the orchestra, "L'elisir d'amore" is considered a comic opera, since it has a romance as its central plot, and has a happy ending. Legend has it that Donizetti wrote the opera in only a few weeks, since he was in great demand after the success of his work " Anna Bolena. L'elisir d'amore translates from Italian as "The Elixir of Love. The poor Nemorino pines for the lovely Adina, who shows him nothing but indifference.
Heavily edited during dress rehearsals by the Milanese censors, Ugo had been an unmitigated flop. In fact, the cuts enforced by the censors were so grievous that the librettist, Felice Romani, completely disowned the libretto upon learning of them. It is not entirely clear when Donizetti actually began work on the two-act opera, but we do know that he continued to compose all the way until the start of dress rehearsals. On April 24th, Donizetti updated his father on the preparations for the premiere:. I am here, very much here, as in the coming week I will start rehearsals, even though I may not have finished though I am lacking only a little. Romani was obliged to finish quickly, and now he is adjusting certain things for the stage. Yesterday was the first performance of the season, and the only tenor is passable, the donna has a pretty voice, and the buffo is a bit hammy.
It is sung by Nemorino tenor when he finds that the love potion he bought to win the heart of his dream lady, Adina, works. Nemorino is in love with Adina, but she is not interested in a relationship with an innocent, rustic man.
