ROH Live: Don Pasquale
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 of a middle-aged man whose supposed young wife runs rings around him – with her own ulterior romantic purpose in mind – has long delighted and surprised audiences. Damiano Michieletto’s exhilarating production shows how contemporary the characters still are and how immediate and touching the story remains.
210 mins (with intervals).
