Royal Opera Encore: Don Pasquale30th October
Opera superstar Bryn Terfel leads the cast for a new production of this witty comedy of domestic drama across two generations.
This 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, not least as presented with the sparkle of its music and the virtuoso skill of its performers. Damiano Michieletto’s exhilarating production shows how contemporary the characters still are and how immediate and touching the story remains
Sung in Italian with English subtitles
