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!  


If you like The Barber of Seville, you’ll enjoy Don Pasquale.

COMPOSED BY
Gaetano Donizetti

Libretto BY
Giovanni Ruffini 

Premiered
The opera was first performed on January 3, 1843, by the Théâtre-Italien at the Salle Ventadour in Paris with great success and it is generally regarded as being the high point of the 19th century opera buffa tradition and, in fact, marking its ending.

Sung in ITALIAN
