The wealthy old bachelor, Don Pasquale, has decided to take a wife so that he may produce an heir, cutting his insubordinate nephew, Ernesto, out of his inheritance.
Ernesto is devastated to think of a life without Norina, a beautiful, widow in the village. Enter Dr. Malatesta - whose name translates to mean “headache.” That is exactly what he will be for Pasquale, as he helps the couple come up with a plan to marry with Ernesto’s inheritance!
