Don Pasquale - Lime Tree Theatre

Don Pasquale

Presented by Irish National Opera


A screwball comedy of comeuppance that pits age, money and power against agile youth and deception.

Don Pasquale, a grumpy old bachelor. Ernesto, his good-looking young heir. And Norina, an attractive young widow.

Book Now

This unorthodox love triangle yields a hilarious and touching masterpiece that takes a riotously entertaining slant on a threat of disinheritance, a mock marriage, and a spendthrift wife who believes husbands should be seen and not heard. Donizetti’s most sparkling operatic comedy.

Bass Graeme Danby sings the title role, with tenor Rhodri Prys Jones as his nephew Ernesto and soprano Kelli-Ann Masterson as Norina.

Don Pasquale features the Irish National Opera orchestra and is directed by Orpha Phelan, with set and costume design by Nicky Shaw and lighting design by Matt Haskins.
