Opéra de Paris: DON PASQUALE (Donizetti)

  • Cast
  • Michele Pertusi, Lawrence Brownlee
  • Director
  • Damiano Michieletto
  • Synopsis
  • Opéra de Paris: DON PASQUALE (Donizetti)
    New Production! “Foolish indeed is he who marries in old age.” Thus ends Don Pasquale: with a wise dictum not lacking in irony that sums up the disappointments of its hero (Italian bass Michele Pertusi), a rich bachelor keen to marry, who is deceived by his nephew Ernesto (award-winning American bel-canto Lawrence Brownlee) and his young bride-to-be Norina (rising soprano Nadine Sierra). First performed in Paris in 1843, at the turning point of several eras, Donizetti’s composite and varied work is the apotheosis of opera bu a. For this new production, the Paris Opera has entrusted award-winning Italian director Damiano Michieletto who'll transport audiences directly to the sincerity and dramatic splendour at the heart of an apparently light-hearted work.

    Captured live from Palais Garnier, Paris, 19 Jun 2018.
    Conductor: Evelino Pidò. Interval. Sung in Italian, with English subtitles.
