Don Pasquale, Donizetti’s timeless and witty comedy, features a spectacular cast of returning PNO favorites and new voices to our stage. Norina, a young widow, will be played by Serena Eduljee. Eduljee’s performance of the doll in Tales of Hoffmann brought down the house and has more than 15,000 views on Facebook. Norina’s suitor, Ernesto (tenor Issac Frishman, making his PNO debut) is about to be disinherited by his miserly uncle, Don Pasquale. This title role is to be played by Andy Papas (returning after his most recent PNO appearance as the dwarf, Alberich, in PNO’s Ring of the Nibelung). It takes the clever scheming of Dr. Malatesta, performed by Mark Davies (Schaunard in PNO’s La Boheme and Pong in Turandot) to set things right and to teach the old curmudgeon a lesson. Being a Donzetti work, resolution requires mistaken identities and comic confusion. The conductor, Gregory Buchalter (Metropolitan Opera), will be making his PNO debut.

Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
