In "L'elisir d'amore," Adina is seen reading the story of Tristan and Isolde, a tragic tale of love and betrayal. Adina is reading the story to herself while lounging in her garden, as Nemorino watches her from a distance.

The scene serves as a way to contrast Adina's sophisticated and educated nature with Nemorino's more simple and unsophisticated approach to love. Adina's interest in literature and culture suggests that she is more worldly and experienced than Nemorino, who is a simple country bumpkin. Adina's reading of the tragic love story of Tristan and Isolde also foreshadows the romantic and emotional twists and turns of her own relationship with Nemorino.

Later in the opera, Adina admits to Nemorino that she is moved by the story of Tristan and Isolde, and that she believes true love can overcome any obstacle. This admission sets the stage for the emotional climax of the opera, in which Adina realizes that she is in love with Nemorino, and that their love is stronger than any potion or magic elixir.
