In this modern production set during the golden age of Hollywood, Don Pasquale is an aging silent film star at the sunset of his career. Our protagonist sets off to find a wife and heir to his fortune. He gets hitched to the cunning Norina, a widowed gold digger who conspires with Ernesto, the Don’s nephew. Supported by a chorus of servants dressed as 1950’s Hollywood film stars, Don Pasquale is a hilarious opera full of nostalgic glamor and lively humor. Tickets available online at artsbridgega.org
