DON PASQUALE. Music by Donizetti
With Bryn Terfel, Olga Peretyatko, Ioan Hotea, Mariusz Kwiecie?
Conductor: Evelino Pido, Director: Damiano Michieletto
Royal Opera favourite Bryn Terfel heads the cast for this new production of Donizetti’s comedy of domestic drama across two generations. The witty story tells of a middle-aged man whose supposed young wife runs rings around him – with her own ulterior romantic purpose in mind. It has long delighted and surprised audiences, with the sparkle of its music, presented with virtuoso skill by its performers. Damiano Michieletto’s exhilarating production shows how contemporary the characters still are and how immediate and touching the story remains.
Approximate running time: 2 hours 30 minutes. Sung in Italian with English surtitles
