Don Pasquale - English Touring Opera

This is a comedy with zest, cream, and an Italian accent – think zabaglione! - in a new production directed by William Oldroyd, with Dominic Wheeler conducting.

Monday 22 March 7.30pm

This Spring, English Touring Opera present three of the wittiest works of the repertoire, taken from the 18th, 19th, and 20th Centuries. These very different operas – all of them describing the events of one day - find comedy in stifling Sevillian manor houses, in enchanted woods, and in dusty bachelors' quarters.

Don Pasquale – Donizetti


This is a comedy with zest, cream, and an Italian accent – think zabaglione! - in a new production directed by William Oldroyd, with Dominic Wheeler conducting.

Keel Watson plays Don Pasquale, a stubborn, competitive, old bachelor – and here a tyrant conductor – who wants to procure a young wife. He seems set to steal from his nephew a beautiful, and apparently submissive bride – but his clumsy wooing turns to painful woe when she reveals her own mind.
