Set in Rome at the cusp of the Swinging Sixties, it’s the perfect setting for a colossal clash of the generations. There’s no fool like an old fool, particularly when it comes to love and money. Don Pasquale, a reclusive old man with a penchant for cats, runs his pensione with only a chain-smoking chambermaid, a greasy cook, and an ancient porter for company. Worried that his wealth will be squandered by his scheming nephew Ernesto, Pasquale determines to find himself a wife. When a distinctly feline young lady conveniently turns up, he is smitten. But having a wife is not quite as straightforward as he expected. Has Ernesto got the better of the old curmudgeon at last? From melodic arias to punchy patter and sparkling humor, Donizetti’s music brings this comedic masterpiece to life. Tickets are $16-$254.
