Concert: Opera Bites: Don Pasquale
Comic opera at its best! A vivacious romp through mistaken identity in one of Donizetti’s most brilliant and popular operas. Young and old will delight in this farcical tale of Don Pasquale’s attempts to secure a wife and disinherit his nephew, Ernesto. Mischievous Dr Maletesta is on hand to ensure that feisty Norina marries the man of her dreams. Jam-packed with melodic and memorable tunes, it features many of the opera world’s most cherished arias and ensembles and has something for everyone.
Performed in English, this fully costumed performance is complete in 90 minutes.
Tickets $45 / $35 + booking fee
Concert: History of Opera (in just 90 minutes!)
