    Villazón is the director as well as the Nemorino in that L'Elisir, which probably explains things. Considering some of the tenor’s other stagings, I’m a little surprised he didn’t find some way to insert clowns in the action.

    I have not seen his other stagings. There was someone in a gorilla suit appeared a few times, and Adina at one point fires a pistol into the air followed by a vulture dropping to the stage. No clowns though. Just a fair amount of clowning around.
