Royal Opera House: L'Elisir d'amore (NR) 2/5/2015
Daniele Rustioni, Lucy Crowe - 2 hr. 45 mins.
photoDonizetti's romantic comedy of rural life shines brilliantly in Laurent Pelly's hilarious staging, which matches the piece's perfect blend of sentiment and tomfoolery. Italian conductor and former Jette Parker Young Artist Daniele Rustioni conducts a starry cast. Lucy Crowe takes the dazzling soprano lead as Adina, the most sophisticated woman in the village, loved from afar by Vittorio Grigolo's handsome but shy Nemorino. Nemorino meets a worrying rival in Levente Molnár's braggart Sergeant Belcore, until the love potion sold to him by Bryn Terfel's larger-than-life travelling quack, Dr Dulcamara, gives him a powerful dose of courage - with both comic and touching results.

The Royal Opera House: La Boheme (2014) (NR) 7/9/2015
Rolando Villazón, Maija Kovalevska - 2 hr. 42 mins.
photoTeeming with period detail, John Copley's definitive production of this much-loved opera is traditional opera at its best. From a shabby garret to the bustling Café Momus to a snowy courtyard at dawn, this minutely observed panorama of 1830s Parisian life, beautifully designed by Julia Trevelyan Oman, conjures emotions and atmosphere ranging from joy to tragedy, in large-scale crowd scenes and intimate tableaux.
Puccini no doubt drew on his own student escapades for the robust humor of the comic scenes. And in his depiction of the tender and ultimately tragic love between Mimě and Rodolfo, Puccini achieved an immediacy, warmth and humanity that have rarely been equaled.
