The love potion is created by Donizetti in the incredible record time of two weeks: The result is one of the most heartwarming and comical love stories of the entire opera.

Adina, Gutspächterin in a rather remote village's young, rich - and well read. The poor Nemorino admired her. The country people she submits a touching version of the story of Tristan and Isolde, but she finds plenty of funny: Tristan, Isolde unloved receive a miracle man a love potion, is overcome by the magic of Isolde's heart. Adina is glad that there is not this kind potions. Nemorino, who - although he will not listen - love dearly, has been listening attentively. Sergeant Belcore one moves and ending with his soldiers quarters. Adina against it are themselves gallantly, but calls for their equal love. The capricious Adina, however, can not win so easily. Nemorino is able to assert once again how much he loves Adina. However, they reject it,, they would remain free and unbound. As Dulcamara arrives with some fanfare, claiming to be widely celebrated quack doctor and extols his remedy for every conceivable disease. The country people can be cajoled. Finally, Nemorino asks the quack if he also leads a love potion with it. Dulcamara immediately sees through the situation and sold the grateful Nemorino at the ready cash all the coveted elixir. They act only after 24 hours as a precaution Dulcamara says he has turned on the unsuspecting Nemorino nothing but a bottle of Bordeaux wine. Immediately Nemorino drinks it, and his mood improved noticeably. He pretends to be indifferent to Adina. Now, they may recruit him. This sudden reversal of meaning is not quite Adina again. She wants to find out if Nemorinos feelings are actually cold for them, and said abruptly, to marry Belcore, but today, as the sergeant had to move tomorrow morning. Nemorino, the time being - building on his elixir - was confident of victory, is now completely befuddled. He had not imagined the impact of the love potion. But it wirdn ready for the wedding. Dulcamara Adina plays with an improvised Venetian love scene. The notary will appear with the marriage contract, but Adina will sign later. Nemorino wants of Dulcamara, a second bottle of the miracle elixir.

The supposed love potion has unexpectedly fast: a whole bunch girl caresses Nemorino. This is not surprising him particularly, he has been awarded his elixir strong. However, he suspects the true background of the wonderful affection not: Gianetta the secret until then news has spread that very Nemorinos begüteter uncle had died and had used it as sole heir. Nemorino finds the girls very pleasant company. Adina he ignores what arouses their jealousy. From Dulcamara she finds out why Nemorino has enlisted. The quack is now offering her the love potion. But she refuses to do a better means to Nemorino, she is so fond of but to win: their eyes. Nemorino believes he has seen in Adina's eye a secret tear. Does she love him does it? After his beautiful romance Adina gives him self-assurance: She confesses her love, he goes back the Anwerbedekret, and has paid back the earnest money Belcore and Nemorino ransomed. Belcore finds his bride in the arms of another. Although he is disappointed, but he puts a good face for the game, and for soldiers like him there would be enough girls. Nemorino and Adina will hear first from the estate. Dulcamara advantage of the situation for themselves. He prides himself on his art, thanks to which Nemorino both to his love as luck had also reached capacity.
