Don Pasquale is the last and most sophisticated of Gaetano Donizetti’s bel canto comic operas. The melodies are in turn lyrical, bubbly, wry, melting, ironic and rhythmic; the opera contains showstopping arias for soprano and tenor, and one of the funniest and most challenging patter duets ever written.
Don Pasquale, a wealthy old man decides to get married. Why? Most likely to spite his nephew Ernesto whose current girlfriend Norina Pasquale feels is entirely unsuitable for his family stature. He asks his friend Dr Malatesta for help. The girl the Malatesta delivers is none other than Norina — a trick of course. Norina transforms from the apparently docile convent-schooled maiden into a bossy dragon lady who sets about spending all of Pasquale’s money. Pasquale now has the opposite problem: how to get rid of her…
In this, the swansong of bel canto comic opera, Donizetti produced a layered romantic-comedy that is more than just fun, games and beautiful music.
