Act I
Italy, 1836. Nemorino, a young villager, is unhappily in love with the beautiful farm owner Adina, who he thinks is beyond his reach. Adina tells the gathered peasants about the book she is reading—a story of how Tristan won the heart of Isolde by drinking a magic love potion. A regiment of soldiers arrives led by the pompous Sergeant Belcore, who immediately introduces himself to Adina and asks her to marry him. Adina declares that she is in no hurry to make up her mind but promises to think over the offer. Left alone with Nemorino, Adina tells him that his time would be better spent in town, looking after his sick uncle, than hoping to win her love. She suggests that he do as she does and change affections every single day. Nemorino reminds her that one can never forget his first love.

Doctor Dulcamara, a traveling purveyor of patent medicines, arrives in the village advertising a potion capable of curing anything. Nemorino shyly asks him if he sells the elixir of love described in Adina’s book. Dulcamara claims he does, slyly proffering a bottle of simple Bordeaux. Though it costs him his last ducat, Nemorino buys and immediately drinks it. Dulcamara explains that he will have to wait until the next day—when the doctor will be gone—to see the results. Nemorino begins to feel the effect of the “potion” and, convinced he will be irresistible to Adina the next day, feigns cheerful indifference towards her. Surprised and hurt, Adina flirts with Belcore. When orders arrive for the sergeant to return immediately to his garrison, Adina agrees to marry him at once. The shocked Nemorino begs her to wait one more day, but she dismisses him and invites the entire village to her wedding. Nemorino desperately calls for the doctor’s help.

 

第一幕
義大利,1836年。年輕的農村青年聶莫里諾因為暗自愛著美麗的農場主人阿迪娜,卻自覺高攀不上而鬱鬱寡歡。阿迪娜向聚在一起的小農們講述她正在讀的一本書,書上的故事是說崔斯坦如何喝下愛情靈藥而贏得伊索德的心。志得意滿的貝科雷中士領著一團士兵到此,一見到阿迪娜就上前自我介紹,並向她求婚。阿迪娜說自己不急著下決定,但答應會考慮他的求婚。當與聶莫里諾獨處之時,阿迪娜告訴聶莫里諾說,與其追求她的愛,還不如用他的時間到鎮上照顧他生病的叔叔。她奉勸他應該向她一樣,每天換個人來愛。聶莫里諾提醒她初戀是永難忘懷。

遊方賣藥的江湖郎中杜卡馬拉來到村里,宣傳說他有一種能夠治癒所有疾病的妙藥。聶莫里諾羞怯地詢問他有沒有賣阿迪娜所唸書中描述的愛情靈藥。杜卡馬拉一邊說有,一邊狡獪地拿出一瓶劣質的波爾多葡萄酒。聶莫里諾花掉最後一分錢買了這帖靈藥,立刻一飲而盡。杜卡馬拉說聶莫里諾得等到第二天才會看到藥效,其實是要給自己足夠的時間溜走。聶莫里諾開始感覺到「藥效」,這讓他相信到了明天阿迪娜一定會為他傾倒,因而故意裝作對她不理不睬。阿迪娜在驚訝難過之餘轉而接受貝科雷。一紙軍令到來,要求貝科雷中士立即回到駐防部隊,所以阿迪娜馬上同意嫁給他。聶莫里諾大驚失色,懇求阿迪娜多等一天,但她打發他走,並且邀請全村的人參加她的婚禮。聶莫里諾只能帶著最後一線希望再去找杜卡馬拉幫忙。

Act II
At the pre-wedding feast, Adina and Dulcamara entertain the guests with a song. Adina wonders why Nemorino isn’t there. She doesn’t want to sign the marriage contract until he appears. Meanwhile, Nemorino asks Dulcamara for another bottle of the elixir. Since he doesn’t have any money left, the doctor agrees to wait so Nemorino can borrow the cash. Belcore is bewildered that Adina has postponed the wedding. When Nemorino tells him that he needs money right away, the sergeant persuades him to join the army and receive a volunteer bonus. Nemorino buys more elixir and suddenly finds himself besieged by a group of women. Unaware of the news that his uncle has died and left him a fortune, he believes the elixir is finally taking effect. Adina feels responsible for Nemorino’s enlistment, but her concern turns to jealousy when she sees him with the other women. Dulcamara boasts about the power of his elixir and offers to sell Adina some, but she is determined to win Nemorino all on her own.

Nemorino now feels sure that Adina cares for him: He noticed a tear on her cheek when she saw him with the other women. Adina returns to tell Nemorino that she has bought back his enlistment papers. When he again feigns indifference, she finally confesses that she loves him. Belcore appears to find the two embracing and redirects his affections to Giannetta, declaring that thousands of women await him elsewhere. Dulcamara brags to the crowd that his miraculous potion can make people fall in love and even turn poor peasants into millionaires.

 

第二幕
在婚禮前的筵席中,阿迪娜和杜卡馬拉唱著歌娛樂賓客。阿迪娜奇怪為什麼聶莫里諾沒來。她要等到他出現才願意唱出婚姻誓約。在此同時,聶莫里諾要求杜卡馬拉再給他一瓶靈藥。但因為聶莫里諾已經身無分文,郎中同意等他去籌錢來買。貝科雷不解阿迪娜為何要將婚禮延遲。此時聶莫里諾告訴他說自己急需用錢,中士說服他只要從軍就能拿到一筆志願獎金。聶莫里諾買了更多靈藥,然後突然發現自己被一群女子團團包圍。他還不知道這是因為他的叔叔剛才過世了,留給他一大筆遺產,反而以為是愛情靈藥終於生效。阿迪娜覺得自己必須對聶莫里諾的入伍負責,但當她看到他跟其他的女人在一起時,擔憂的心情卻轉為嫉妒。杜卡馬拉吹噓他愛情靈藥的力量,要阿迪娜也買一點,但她決意要靠自己贏得聶莫里諾的心。

聶莫里諾發現阿迪娜看到他跟別的女人在一起時流下了眼淚,確定了阿迪娜心裡有他。阿迪娜告訴聶莫里諾,她已經將聶莫里諾的入伍書贖回。當聶莫里諾再次假裝無情時,阿迪娜終於承認自己愛著他。貝科雷發現兩人擁抱在一起,決定轉而追求芝婭納塔,並且說其他地方還有好幾千名女子等著他。杜卡馬拉向群眾誇耀他的魔藥能夠讓人陷入愛河,甚至能讓貧窮的農夫變成百萬富翁。
