OPERA lovers in South Somerset are in for a treat on Thursday 11th July when Welsh National Opera brings Donizetti’s Don Pasquale to Yeovil’s Octagon Theatre.
A comic opera with wonderful music, Don Pasquale is staged with a new and updated libretto by Daisy Evans, who has also directed this small-scale touring production, with an on-stage orchestra.
Set in and around Pasquale’s doner kebab van, it’s the story of an old bachelor’s romantic delusions and the young lovers who outwit him.
Don Pasquale brings together a cast of larger-than-life characters, including Pasquale’s young nephew Ernesto and his girlfriend Norina, as well as local geezer Malatesta and his travelling band who hang around Pasquale’s kebab van after their long nights of boozing.
