Drama Comedy

This production of Donizetti’s bubbly farce presents the miserly aristocrat Don Pasquale as a silent movie star facing the end of his career in 1950s Hollywood. Locked in a battle of wits and wills with his lovesick nephew Ernesto and the crafty widow Norina, Pasquale must grapple with the new problems and possibilities of the modern technicolor world. It takes the clever scheming of the family doctor to teach the old curmudgeon a lesson—but not before a series of amusing catastrophes threaten to shatter his ego for good.
