On Saturday, the Metropolitan Opera will continue its 2017-18 Live in HD series with a performance of Donizetti’s “L’Elisir d’Amore.”

The opera is set to star Matthew Polenzani, Pretty Yende, Davide Luciano, and Ildebrando d’Arcangelo in Bartlett Sher’s production.

The production was largely hailed with OperaWire noting that the singers “made this night another success for the Met as the artists received a standing ovation. While it is no easy thing to straddle the line between comedy and emotional sincerity, the night’s performance did just that without neglecting one for the other. Though a standard in the Met’s repertoire, audiences will find much to enjoy thanks to the passionate work of its cast.”

The performance will be broadcast to millions around the world and is the latest entry in the ever-popular Live in HD series. Next up in the series is Puccini’s “La Bohème” on Feb. 24, Rossini’s “Semiramide” on March 10, Mozart’s “Così fan tutte” on March 31, Verdi’s “Luisa Miller” on April 14 and Massenet’s “Cendrillon” on April 28.
