Don Pasquale

Donizetti’s entertaining comedy of equivocations

Teatro Regio, Tuesday 14 April 2009 at 8 pm

Don Pasquale, the opera buffa in three acts by Gaetano Donizetti, on the libretto by the same composer and Giovanni Ruffini, based on a subject by Angelo Anelli, will open on Tuesday 14 April at Teatro Regio. With this work, an acclaimed masterpiece of the buffo gendre, the Teatro Regio re-proposes a successful production dating from the end of the 1980s, directed by one of the masters of Italian musical drama: the writer, journalist and director Ugo Gregoretti. The sets and costumes are by the late great Eugenio Guglielminetti (1921-2006), the painter and sculptor who chose the theatre as his favourite form of art, becoming one of the most active and highly appraised contemporary stage designers. On the podium of the orchestra of the Regio is the young and talented  Michele Mariotti, who, at the age of only 30 can boast of a career of great importance. The chorus will be directed by Maestro Claudio Fenoglio. Don Pasquale will be broadcast live by  Rai Radio3 on 14 April.
