It is the genial characters of this opera that are reminiscent of Italian improvised comedy, or commedia dell’arte. On the one hand, a capricious, young woman who gives an elderly would-be-lover the run-around with self-confidence and humour, and on the other her real lover, and between them a cunning schemer. In Don Pasquale Gaetano
Donizetti created a supremely entertaining classic that always offers the greatest singers and performers an opportunity to showcase their talent. This cheerful and effervescent work has not been in the repertoire of the Wiener Staatsoper for three decades, but is now returning to the opera house on the Ring.
