Don Pasquale, a grumpy old bachelor. Ernesto, his good-looking young heir. And Norina, an attractive young widow. This unorthodox love triangle yields a hilarious and touching masterpiece that takes a riotously entertaining slant on a threat of disinheritance, a mock marriage, and a spendthrift wife who believes husbands should be seen and not heard. Donizetti’s most sparkling operatic comedy.
