About the production

  • Run time: 2hrs 30min, 1 intermission
  • Sung in: ITALIAN
  • Subtitles: English, German and other languages
  • Opera house: Vienna State Opera


It’s one of the oldest stories of all: an old curmudgeon wants to marry a beauty young enough to be his daughter. Donizetti’s timeless comedy shines in Irina Brook’s enchanting production, conducted by Evelino Pidò and featuring a remarkable cast. Ruth Iniesta is Norina, the “biddable” girl who agrees to a mock marriage with Don Pasquale (Ambrogio Maestri) in order to teach him a lesson, and clear the way to marry her true love, heartthrob Ernesto (Cyrille Dubois). Sergey Kaydalov is Dr. Malatesta who masterminds the whole plot.

Gaetano Donizetti (1797–1848) was remarkably productive, composing more than 60 operas plus orchestral and chamber music, in a career abbreviated by mental illness and premature death.

The libretto is largely by Italian writer Giovanni Ruffini (1807 – 1881). As Donizetti had made many changes to the draft, Ruffini asked for his name to be omitted from the score, which lead to confusion over the identity of the librettist for more than half a century.

The plot of Don Pasquale is based on the opera Ser Marcantonio (1810) by Stefano Pavesi to a libretto by Angelo Anelli.
