We have many magic potions in opera; without looking beyond Wagner we have
potions that cause love (Tristan), forgetfulness (Gotterdammerung), and
remembrance (Gotterdammerung again.)
There are a number of physicians on this list, and I am wondering if there is
anything in the pharmacopoeia, ancient or modern, that would elicit love,
forgetfulness, or recall.
