About

Rolando Villazón is both performer and stage director in this 2012 production of Donizetti’s L'Elisir d’amore in Baden Baden! “I accepted the challenge of staging and singing for the same production because I had been told never to do it,” jokingly confided the brilliant Mexican tenor who captures the audience's hearts with the famous air “Una furtiva lagrima”, an aria sung by his character Nemorino, passionate admirer of the beautiful and rich Adina (Miah Persson), who snubs the poor farm boy. Pablo Héras-Casado conducts the period-instrument specialized Balthasar-Neumann-Ensemble, and together they create the quintessential musical magic that is bel canto.
