A programme for the 1990 production of Donizetti's 'L'Elisir d'Amore' at the Royal Opera House, starring Luciano Pavarotti as Nemorino. The cast also includes Judith Howarth, Daniela Mazzucato, Ingvar Wixell and Rolando Panerai.
The programme contains the cast list, cast biographies, a synopsis of the opera, several short essays and historical notes on its composition, performance and themes, and many advertisements. Many photographs and artworks are printed, including three in colour. An insert, unfortunately marked on the front and back, contains the full credits for the performance - the 84th at the Royal Opera House, on Saturday 24th March 1990.
The programme booklet itself is clean and unmarked inside, with only some very slight discolouration of the page edges. The cover shows minor wear at the edges and the spine, and there are some faint marks on the back cover.
