Netrebko and Vargas in Donizetti's The Elixir of Love: The Met Opera on WRTI, Jan. 25, 1 PM

Soprano Anna Netrebko reprises her adorable Adina in this charming production of Gaetano Donizetti’s tender comedy. Acclaimed tenor Ramón Vargas is the love-struck Nemorino, and Erwin Schrott sings the likeable quack Dulcamara, whose "magic" potion causes as many problems as it solves, and maps the destiny of a love triangle involving a lovable bumpkin, a dashing sergeant, and a bewitching town flirt.

L'Elisir d'Amore (The Elixir of Love) includes the heartbreaking aria "Una furtiva lagrima."
