Gaetano Donizetti - L'elisir d'amore - "Signor sergente" (Peter Dvorsky, Lucia Popp, Bernd Weikl & Judith Hobart)


The finale proper begins with Gianetta's entrance with a letter from Belcore's commander (talk about dramatical messenger; plus, the music is brilliantly "runny" in the strings). Belcore and his men are to leave the very next morning. But that doesn't really stop Adina who (and that's the second part of the all-important-event) announces that she will marry Belcore immediately which causes Nemorino great distress (plus, the wine has gotten out of his system a bit). The next section is the iconic "suspension-over-time": Nemorino's gentle, sighing, elegant line is contrasted with Belcore's and Adina's laughing, mocking short phrases (the soprano only joins the tenor's line for her two last couplets as she laments the loss of all possible hope of marrying Nemorino). Finally, time returns as all except Nemorino (and, secretly, Adina) rejoice at the news of the upcoming news; Nemorino is pushed aside with only his cries of "doctor! doctor!" audible. And that's the Act One Finale :)! Peter Dvorsky, Lucia Popp, Bernd Weikl are joined by the Gianetta of Judith Hobarth. Hope you enjoyed it :)! The next piece, Adina's big aria is coming soon.
