"Don Pasquale" by Donizetti

19th Aug 2019 7:30pm

Wanderlust Productions present Don Pasquale by Gaetano Donizetti

"endlessly amusing, equally charming and a delight to the ears of both Opera stalwarts, and those new to the art form" - Theatreview Feb 2019

Don Pasquale is a wealthy bachelor, who lives with his nephew Ernesto, who is a huge disappointment. Ernesto refuses to marry the girl of Pasquale’s chosing, and insists he loves only Norina. Frustrated, Pasquale asks his doctor’s help to find him a suitable, docile bride to produce an heir. Dr Malatesta, moved by the plight of Ernesto and Norina, finds the ideal candidate: Cordelia, fresh out of the convent (here’s the twist! It’s Norina in disguise!) Hilarity ensues.

"Wanderlust makes opera relevant. It strips back the elitist stereotype of the genre and offers instead a whimsical and accessible version, while being uncompromising in the quality of the performance.... this passionate cast and crew gently bring this 175-year-old opera into the 21st Century" -  Theatreview Feb 2019
