Paramount Presents: Met Live in HD Encore – Donizetti’s Don Pasquale (from November 13, 2010)
Limited Capacity Event: 100 of 1041 seats available
Gaetano Donizetti ENCORE Performance Broadcast
Sung in: Italian World premiere: Théâtre Italien, Paris, 1843.
Donizetti’s timeless comedy shines in Otto Schenk’s enchanting production, conducted by James Levine and featuring a remarkable cast. The incomparable Anna Netrebko is Norina, the young widow beloved by Ernesto (a suave Matthew Polenzani), who is about to be disinherited by his miserly uncle, Don Pasquale (John Del Carlo). It takes the clever scheming of Dr. Malatesta (Mariusz Kwiecien) to set things right and to teach the old curmudgeon a lesson—fits of temper, mistaken identities, and all kinds of comic confusion included.
