Donizetti’s Don Pasquale
A rootin’ tootin’ romp in the Wild West!
David Gately’s well-loved concept of Gaetano Donizetti’s classic buffo opera Don Pasquale is an evening of fun, laughs and amazing tunes sure to satisfy everyone.
Join us as we saddle up to tell the story of Don Pasquale, an ornery old thing who’s desire to be married soon fades when his much younger wife takes the reigns and drives his life out of control. It is a classic “spaghetti western” complete with gun totin’ cowboys, saloon gals, bubble baths and even a Mariachi band to help set the stage for this evening of light-hearted fun. Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
Performances Sept. 30, Oct. 1 & Oct. 7, 8 at the Bankhead Theater
