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
