(Donizetti: L'elisir d'amore). Ten. A poor young peasant in love with the wealthy Adina, who seems to prefer Belcore. To help him woo her, he buys a love—potion (really wine) from the quack Dulcamara and becomes very drunk, which gives him false courage. When he inherits money from a rich uncle, all the girls throw themselves at him, making Adina admit her love for him. Aria: Una furtiva lagrima (‘One furtive tear’). Created (1832) by Giambattista Genero.
