This performance showcases Luciano Pavarotti at his magnificent best. The role of good hearted Nemorino might have been written just for him.

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
