Don Pasquale
Tuesday, February 16, at 8:30

Don Pasquale is an opera buffa
in three acts, that is, it deals with
the lower classes. Composed by
Gaetano Donizetti, a contemporary
of Verdi, the setting is Rome in
the nineteenth century. The main
characters are Don Pasquale, an
old bachelor; his nephew Ernesto;
Norino, a beautiful young widow
and beloved of Ernesto; and Dr.
Malatesta, a friend of the family.
The plot surrounds the young
lovers whose marriage is opposed
by Don Pasquale. With the help
of Dr. Malatesta, they contrive a
plan which will win the consent of
the uncle.
The Goldovsky Opera Company
originated in Boston in 1946 as an
opera theatre which would provide
talented young singers with oppor
tunities to gain the performing ex
perience, essential to their future
success. Since then it has been
famous for its experimental tech
niques and search for new operatic
material. The basic creed of the
Goldovsky Opera Theatre can be
summarized in one phrase: unified
and homogeneous musical and the
atrical style.
