This morning, we heard Luciano Pavarotti singing the most famous aria of Gaetano Donizetti. “Una furtiva lagrima” – ‘a furtive tear’ in English – is the romanza sung by Nemorino when he finds that the love potion he bought to win the heart of his dream lady, Adina, actually works. What Donizetti opera is this from?
