“Don Pasquale” the Opera

An old as the world, though slightly modernized, plot about an elderly wealthy man getting fooled by a young couple as a punishment for standing in the way of their happiness. A premiere in the Atlanta Opera repertoire planned for the Spring, 2017.

Are you the organizer of this event?

Tomer Zvulun who has been in charge of Atlanta Opera since 2013 does his best to achieve the proper balance of “oldies”, “goldies” and “newbies” in the repertoire for each season. In Spring 2017, the theater under his direction is to premiere Don Pasquale, a lesser known piece by Gaetano Donizetti (music) and Giovanni Ruffini (libretto) staged for the first time in 1843.

An ageing bachelor Don Pasquale is eager to marry and get an heir to his wealth. At the same time, he forbids his nephew, Ernesto, to marry his beloved widow Norina. With the help of Doctor Malatesta, Norina gets Don Pasquale wrapped around her finger, and he has to admit the young couple's right to be happy together.

The upcoming staging sets the action in the golden age 1920s Hollywood with Don Pasquale as a silent movie star losing his popularity with the coming of “talkies”.
