Introduction

Norina and Ernesto are a young couple in love but then Don Pasquale, Ernesto's aged uncle, decides to interfere. He has other plans for his nephew involving marriage to a wealthy single lady. Dr Malatesta comes to the aid of the bewildered young pair, sparking off a series of entertaining developments – bizarre incidents, mix-ups and hard lessons about life – before the happy ending is reached and they marry. All this is accompanied by Gaetano Donizetti's captivating melodies. His Don Pasquale, considered one of the foremost Italian comic operas, is a Romantic game that scored an instant success at its Parisian premiere in 1847. It is also a homage from Donizetti to the opera buffa tradition. Laurent Pelly's famed dramatic imagination is brought to bear here on a masterpiece of the genre.
