Don Pasquale

Gaetano Donizetti

3, 7, 11, 15, 19 July

Don Pasquale is a sparkling comedy with lyrical music, one of Donizetti’s most enduringly popular operas. Longborough welcomes Thomas Blunt to conduct this charming opera buffa, directed by Alan Privett.

Set on a 1930’s Hollywood sound stage, imagine yourself as the cameraman, and keep your wits about you. After all, the principal actors and the studio crew alike all have their private lives, as well as a job to do…

Performances on 3, 7, 11, 15 July begin at 6.30 pm and have a 90 minute dining interval. The performance on Sunday 19 July begins at 3 pm and has a 75 minute afternoon tea interval. Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
