The old bachelor Don Pasquale decides to marry and produce an heir just to spite his disobedient nephew Ernesto, who insists on marrying for love rather than money. Pasquale’s friend Dr Malatesta provides the perfect bride. But Malatesta is a double agent, and nothing and nobody are quite what they seem. Chaos ensues, but love wins the day.
The perfect entertainment for a summer night, Don Pasquale is as effervescent and quintessentially Italian as a glass of Prosecco. Its irresistibly lilting score bursts with the feel-good tunes, long lyrical lines, daredevil florid singing and sheer vocal beauty that define the bel canto style.
Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
