New production captured live from Teatro alla Scala, Milan, 19 Apr 2018.

New Production! Riccardo Chailly's journey through the Italian repertoire, which in 2017 brought back Rossini's The Thieving Magpie, continues with Donizetti's first title Don Pasquale.

Davide Livermore's new production sees Ambrogio Maestri, the Falstaff par excellence of these years, take on the title role, the old bachelor Don Pasquale, another figure suspended between comedy and melancholy with the disillusion of time. With him, the best voices of the new Belcanto generation: Rosa Feola as the young widow Norina, René Barbera as Pasquale's rebellious nephew Ernesto and Mattia Olivieri as Dr. Malatesta.
Approx. 2h25 including interval (Sung in Italian, with English subtitles)

4 Excellent. The melancholic, Fellini-esque atmosphere recreates a Rome in black and white, magnificently evoked. There is a huge wealth of ideas, always well done. The audience was enthralled.
