This performance, captured in Vienna in April 2005, of Donizetti's Elisir d'Amore was an absolute sensation, no doubt due to the casting which brought together Rolando Villazón and Anna Netrebko in the title roles.
The DVD highlights not only Rolando Villazón as the great tenor he is becoming, but also allows you to see the full extent of his talents as an actor. It also introduces on Virgin Classics the Russian soprano Anna Netrebko, with whom Rolando has often performed.
The production, by Otto Schenk, although traditional in character, carries the story with charm and wit.
