Pretty Yende debuts a new role at the Met with her first Adina opposite Matthew Polenzani, who enthralled Met audiences as Nemorino in 2013 with his ravishing “Una furtiva lagrima.” A country lad buys a love potion from a quack doctor, gets drunk on it, plays hard to get, and wins his girl. Bartlett Sher’s production is charming, with deft comedic timing, but also emotionally revealing. Domingo Hindoyan conducts.

Introduction and Opera Talk by Mary Lee starting at 12:15.

Production a gift of The Monteforte Foundation, in honor of Wim Kooyker
