DON PASQUALE by Donizetti in Vienna
Since it was first performed in 1843, Don Pasquale has been regarded as one of the most popular and best-known buffo operas of them all. Still very much rooted in the tradition of the commedia dell’arte, it was written not just for Italy, but also for the Théâtre Italien in Paris. The plot is as old as theatre itself and has never failed to achieve its effect. It is the story of a love-struck snobbish show-off who is completely cured of his desire to marry and, in the end, is happy to be able to pass his young betrothed on to her youthful lover because she makes his life hell.
