Washington National Opera Welcomes Don Pasquale, starring James Morris

Venture to the WNO May 13th - 27th for a special performance of Don Pasquale.

Ernesto stands to inherit a fortune from his uncle, Don Pasquale, but only if he forsakes Norina, the woman he loves. Dr. Malatesta has a wild plan to help his friend, and in true opera buffa fashion, hilarity ensues, complete with a sham marriage, a slap in the face, rampant overspending, and disguise. Yikes! Don Pasquale’s uproarious plot and sublime music combine to make this one of Donizetti’s finest operas. Full of humor and poignancy, the charming and tuneful score features bright melodies with coloratura fireworks.
