Donizetti’s most sparkling operatic comedy. Don Pasquale, a grumpy old bachelor. Ernesto, his good-looking young heir. And Norina, an attractive young widow. This unorthodox love triangle yields a hilarious and touching masterpiece that takes a riotously entertaining slant on a threat of disinheritance, a mock marriage and a spendthrift wife.
Conducted by Teresa Riveiro Böhm and directed by Orpha Phelan, with Graeme Danby as Don Pasquale and Kelli-Ann Masterson as Norina.
Duration 2 hours 20 minutes, including interval.
