Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’Amore at Glyndebourne

An annual treat is being invited to Glyndebourne by George and Mary Christie whom I admire immensely and whose forbearance and initiative have set the highest of musical standards at that phenomena in the East Sussex countryside.
This year it was Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’Amore – Enrique Mazzola conducted like a master, Danielle de Niese as Adina did her husband Gus Christie proud [he is now Glyndebourne’s Executive Chairman]. Michael Wade Lee, the understudy, played a touching and believable Nemorino.
