Donizetti's comic gem L'Elisir d'Amore, directed by Bartlett Sher and conducted by Maurizio Benini, stars Anna Netrebko in her Met role debut as the beautiful landowner Adina, with Matthew Polenzani as Nemorino, the simple peasant who falls in love with her. Mariusz Kwiecien sings Adina's arrogant fiancé, Sergeant Belcore, and Ambrogio Maestri sings the role of the magic potion-peddling Doctor Dulcamara.
