Don't see it if Honestly, it's the most FUN opera I've ever seen. If you need a tragic end, this won't scratch that itch, but it's fun start to finish.

A perfect cast, Director bartlett sher does it again, Superbly delightful in every way, Great acting, Delightful

See it if you want to have a truly glorious experience at the Met. Brittany Rence enchants with every note. Javier Camarena pines for love with verve

Hilarious, Great singing, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if an opera romcom! lighthearted with great singing & simple plot; psychology of love playing out with a conman interloping; no one dies!

Don't see it if you don't like opera; you have trouble following foreign languages & don't want to read subtitles (read a summary of the plot beforehand)..

"There was never a moment that dragged the entire evening...Overall this was a fine 'Elisir' that is in desperate need of a new stage director and / or production."
