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)..

Great staging, Great singing, Great acting, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you’d like to see a light and cute opera at the Met, with beautiful staging and production. A feast to one’s eyes, ears and heart.

Don't see it if you like drama and serious plots. Or prefer a more modern/contemporary aesthetic. Some scenes are really like a living renaissance painting

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

Don't see it if you want to remain a misanthrope. There is nada to dislike here. A great first opera for the uninitiated.

Enchanting, Entertaining, Exquisite, Funny, Delightful

See it if Boy likes girl and tells her. Girl likes boy and pretends otherwise. A snake oil salesman brings them together on accident. It's funny af.

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.

Clever, Romantic, Great staging, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if Donizetti's bel canto crowd-pleaser does just that in Bartlett Sher's elegant production Well sung esp by the men w/Anduaga in Met debut

Don't see it if Crowd scenes esp around Dr Dulcamara's travelling salesman can often feel cramped & village action a little diffuse but nothing detrimental

"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."
