Don Pasquale by Gaetano Donizetti( )

118 editions published between 1940 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 2,539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When a wealthy old bachelor decides to take a pretty young wife, he is--this being opera--in for trouble. Especially when that wife is the enchanting Reri Grist. Fernando Corena sings the matrimonially inclined title hero, whose plan to disinherit his nephew--the suave, mesmerizing Alfredo Kraus--backfires with more than a little help from Tom Krause's Dr. Malatesta

Act two: In the second act, Dr. Malatesta brings in his "sister," heavily veiled, and presents her to Don Pasquale. When at last she can be induced to lift her veil, Pasquale is overwhelmed with delight and urges an immediate marriage. To this Norina bashfully consents. A fake notary is brought in, but just as the contract is about to be signed, Ernesto returns to say goodbye to his uncle. He is horrified to recognize Norina, but she and the doctor manage to explain matters and prevail upon him to witness the document. The notary leaves. Instantly, Norina's manner changes. She repulses Pasquale severely, summons the servants and doubles their wages, increases the staff, orders quantities of new furniture, clothes, jewels, horses and carriages -- all with the admonition that none but the best will do. When Pasquale protests, she reminds him that she is now mistress of the house and that what she says, goes. As the curtain falls, the Don is choking with rage, Norina and Ernesto are thoroughly enjoying the comedy, and the doctor is ordering his feverish patient to get a good night's sleep. - Flyleaf

Don Pasquale : opera buffa in three acts by Gaetano Donizetti( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in Italian and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the reasons why Donizetti's Don Pasquale is regarded as a cornerstone of the Italian comic opera tradition is because its characters are no mere commedia dell'arte stereotypes, but complex, vulnerable human beings. This is brought to the fore in Mariame Clément's sensitive and perceptive production, which was hailed by the Financial Times as 'a Glyndebourne classic'. Acclaimed buffo baritone Alessandro Corbelli sings the title role 'with just the right degree of lugubriouosness', while Danielle de Niese, one of today's most sought-after sopranos, is an 'engaging' and 'irresistible' Norina (The Telegraph). Bel canto specialist Enrique Massola conducts with flair and panache
