It is one of the world's most famous comedies: On the one side we see an ageing bachelor intent on preserving his assets and who wants to assume the role of a lover once more. On the other we see a young leading lady who cleverly toys with him. In »Don Pasquale«, Donizetti has skilfully constructed the plot and its rounded characters: While the opera is a burlesque, it is also a timeless masterpiece of a conflict between patriarchal desires and youthful self-determination. Director Irina Brook gives the comedy a contemporary touch, swiftly leading it into an exaggeratedly candy-coloured finale, in which laughter is welcome, albeit not only directed at the characters.
