Donizetti’s effervescent comic masterpiece is a witty, high-spirited, inter-generational tug of war about love and money – young love and old money, whipped up by lots of deceit. 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 who believes husbands should be seen and not heard. Donizetti’s most sparkling operatic comedy. Don Pasquale?is directed by?Orpha Phelan, with set and costume design by?Nicky Shaw?and lighting design by?Matt Haskins.
