If Madama Butterfly is the quintessential tragedy, then Don Pasquale may be the ultimate comedy. Whimsically staged in the Old West, join us for a rootin’-tootin’ good time.
This is not just another romantic comedy. Donizetti knew that depth and humanity lay behind this comic façade, and he lavished the score with special care. With a perfect combination of melodic emotional highs and love-lorn laments to humorous rollicking, rhythmic and playful music that can get you bouncing in your seat, this opera has it all!
