Welsh National Opera


Welsh National Opera presents a riotous new version of Donizetti’s classic comic opera, DON PASQUALE. 
Set in and around Pasquale’s doner kebab van, this contemporary production brings the classic story of an old bachelor’s romantic delusions and the young lovers who outwit him bang up to date for 2019.
We meet a cast of larger-than-life characters, including Pasquale’s young nephew, wannabe musician Ernesto, and his girlfriend Norina, as well as local geezer Malatesta who, along with his travelling band, hangs around Pasquale’s kebab van after their long nights of boozing. Pasquale’s quest to find a wife and produce a son and heir to his kebab empire shocks Ernesto into action, and he and Norina conspire to trick the old man, secure their future and drag him into the 21st century.

Director Daisy Evans and Conductor Stephen Higgins have collaborated to give the traditional Don Pasquale tale a modern setting. Performed by 4 singers and an on-stage ensemble who also become part of the action, this is a fantastic new take on a timeless opera.
