Overview

Don Pasquale is one of the most successful and popular comic operas ever written. Donizetti allegedly composed it over a period of 11 days. Giovanni Ruffini wrote the first version of the libretto, which was so drastically rewritten by Donizetti that Ruffini refused to acknowledge it when the opera was first performed at the Théâtre-Italien in Paris in 1843. The work has remained continually one of the most frequently performed comic masterpieces all over the world.

Donizetti, Gaetano

In a life of extraordinary productivity, Gaetano Donizetti (1797-1848) composed 65 operas. Dozens of these still remain on top of the current international repertoire. He wrote in

the famous bel canto style, which glorifies the beauty of the human voice in mellifluous melodies with vivid coloratura ornamentation and dramatic expression. Following a brilliant career in Italy, Donizetti achieved great international fame working in Paris and Vienna during the last years of his life.
