Since its premiere, "Don Pasquale" has delighted audiences worldwide. At the time when opera buffa was on the wane, with its stock characters drawing largely on Pantalone, Harlequin, Pierrot, etc Donizetti created a thoroughly comic situational comedy with psychologically differentiated, highly contradictory individuals packed with emotional vulnerability.

The story presents Don Pasquale, a wealthy old bachelor, who is outraged when he hears his nephew Ernesto intends to marry the impoverished widow Norina. He determines to marry himself and disinherit Ernesto. Ernesto and Norina despair, but their friend Doctor Malatesta comes to aid in order to teach Pasquale a lesson. How it all ends is a mystery even to the characters themselves!

Opera is performed in Italian with subtitles in Estonian and English.
