Note: The Met's production is set in a contemporary rehearsal room, where a traditional production of La Sonnambula, set in a Swiss village, is being prepared. In that rehearsal space, all the events and relations that Bellini's characters experience also happen to the rehearsing preformers in their own "real" lives. In this staging, Amina and Elvino are played by two singers (also named Amina and Elvino) who are, like their fictional counterparts, lovers. The chorus consititutes the population of the Swiss village, and Lisa, the innkeeper of La Sonnambula, is the stage manager.
