L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti ( Recording )
4 editions published between 1985 and 2001 in Italian and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This performance showcases Luciano Pavarotti at his magnificent best. The role of good hearted Nemorino might have been written just for him. Hopelessly in love with wealthy Adina (Kathleen Battle), Nemorino watches, helpless, as flashy Sergeant Belcore (Gino Quilico) seems to win her heart. Enter Dr. Dulcamara (Paul Plishka). He's a quack, but Nemorino believes that the love potion Dulcamara is peddling will help him win Adina's love. It's only a bottle of plain old Bordeaux, but never underestimate the power of true love -- or of Luciano Pavarotti's seductive tenor

Superstar Luciano Pavarotti left his indelible mark on some of the greatest roles in the tenor repertoire--including Verdi's Duke of Mantua, one of opera's ultimate bad boys. In this performance, Pavarotti's trademark honeyed tone and suave phrasing are paired with the innocence of June Anderson's Gilda (in the soprano's Met debut season and role). Leo Nucci is the tragic jester Rigoletto who sees his life and all his plans ruined
