Airs Saturday, February 10, 2018, at 12 noon. The 2017-18 Metropolitan Opera Radio Broadcast season continues with Donizetti’s comedy L’Elisir d’Amore, starring South African soprano Pretty Yende as the wealthy Adina, opposite American tenor Matthew Polenzani as Nemorino, the poor villager hopelessly in love with her. Italian bass Ildebrando D’Arcangelo sings the role of Dulcamara, the quack doctor who sells Nemorino the “elixir of love,” and Italian baritone Davide Luciano makes his network broadcast debut as the cocky visiting sergeant, Belcore. Venezuelan conductor Domingo Hindoyan also makes his network debut with this performance, which will be heard live over Toll Brothers-Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network at 12:00 p.m. CT on Saturday, February 10.
