10/07/17 – Don Pasquale – 1pm

By WBJC Programming | Posted in Operafest | 4 Comments

San Francisco Opera


Sparkling with virtuosic singing and playful humor, this boisterous comedy pits the miserly Don Pasquale against his nephew Ernesto and Ernesto’s sweetheart, the crafty young Norina. Laurent Pelly’s topsy-turvy, rotating set and inventive 20th-century costumes perfectly capture the farcical fun.
