Summary:
From fake potions and feigned emotions to the follies of youth and the vulnerability of age, this set brings together two comedies, L'elisir d'amore and Don Pasquale, works packed with musical wit in which the composer looks beyond the archetypes of the buffa tradition to create complex, individual characters.
