We will be showing Donezetti’s Don Pasquale live from the Royal Opera House on Thursday 24th October at 7.30pm
Don Pasquale, a wealthy old bachelor, is outraged when he hears his nephew Ernesto intends to marry the impoverished widow Norina. He determines to marry himself and disinherit Ernesto. Ernesto and Norina despair, but their friend Doctor Malatesta promises to help them – and teach Pasquale a lesson.
Royal Opera favourite Bryn Terfel heads the cast for this new production of Donizetti’s comedy of domestic drama across two generations which has long delighted and surprised audiences. Damiano Michieletto’s exhilarating production shows how contemporary the characters still are and how immediate and touching the story remains.
