The destitute Nemorino loves the wealthy Adina. To increase his chances, he purchases a “love potion” (in reality, Bordeaux wine) from the miracle doctor Dulcamara. However, his attractiveness is increased by something else: an unexpected inheritance. But with or without the elixir, wine and inheritance: it turns out that Adina loves Nemorino. Nothing stands in the way of a happy ending!

Regula Mühlemann starts as Adina in Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’Amore at the Wiener Staatsoper on February 16 and 23. Evelino Pidò leads the performances, with Jinxu Xiahou as Nemorino, Rafael Fingerlos as Belcore and Ambrogio Maestri as Dulcamara.
