Otto Schenk’s »elixir of love« production is steeped in a warm, southern light and tells the story of Adina and Nemorino – forever known as the greatest success of Donizetti's career. The composer lovingly created an over-the-top, picturesque village, deftly bringing his characters alive, whose happiness and pain – it is touching to see – he takes absolutely seriously. Pretty Yende, who has had acclaimed performances at the New York Met and La Scala in Milan, will make her long-awaited State Opera debut as Adina, and will also be singing Violetta in »La Traviata«, part of this season’s premiere series. Jinxu Xiahou will be by her side singing the role of Nemorino.
