OPERA DI PARIS: DON PASQUALE

2394 OPERA DI PARIS: DON PASQUALE

New production captured live from PalaisGarnier, Paris, 19 Jun 2018.

“Foolish indeed is he who marries in old age.” Thus ends Don Pasquale: with a wise dictum not lacking in irony that sums up the disappointments of its hero (Italian bass Michele Pertusi), a rich bachelor keen to marry, who is deceived by his nephew Ernesto (award-winning American bel-canto Lawrence Brownlee) and his young bride-to-be Norina (rising soprano Nadine Sierra). First performed in Paris in 1843, at the turning point of several eras, Donizetti’s composite and varied work is the apotheosis of opera bu a. For this new production, the Paris Opera has entrusted award-winning Italian director DamianoMichieletto who'll transport audiences directly to the sincerity and dramatic splendour at the heart of an apparently light-hearted work. (Sung in Italian, with English subtitles)
