Friday 20 April – “Opera Safari” Don Pasquale (Donizetti)
Comic opera at its best! A vivacious romp through mistaken identity in one of Donizetti’s most brilliant and popular operas, Don Pasquale. Young and old will delight in this farcical tale of Don Pasquale’s attempts to secure a wife and disinherit his nephew, Ernesto. Mischievous Dr Maletesta is on hand to ensure that feisty Norina marries the man of her dreams. Jam-packed with melodic and memorable tunes, it features many of the opera world’s most cherished arias and ensembles and has something for everyone. Performed in English, this fully costumed performance is complete in 90 minutes.
Tickets include entertainment, 3-course bespoke menu and select fine wines to match. Book for the full series of 4 evenings and SAVE!
