Event Information

With new libretto by Daisy Evans

Director Daisy Evans

Follow the exploits of Don Pasquale in this riotous new version of Donizetti’s classic comic opera. Set in and around Pasquale’s doner kebab van, it’s the story of an old bachelor’s romantic delusions and the young lovers who outwit him.

Don Pasquale brings together a cast of larger-than-life characters, including Pasquale’s young nephew Ernesto and his girlfriend Norina, as well as local geezer Malatesta and his travelling band who hang around Pasquale’s kebab van after their long nights of boozing.

Welsh National Opera brings Daisy Evans’ brilliant new production to venues across Wales and England throughout the summer of 2019, following on from the success of Elena Langer’s Rhondda Rips It Up! in 2018.

Don Pasquale features a small cast and an on-stage orchestra like you’ve never seen or heard before.
