This Sunday 6th enjoy Don Pasquale, a production by the Teatro Colón of Buenos Aires
Next Sunday, September 6 at 8:00 p.m. Argentina, the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires will offer a new transmission through the digital platform Cultura en Casa: Gaetano Donizetti Don Pasquale’s comic opera, performed during the 2019 lyric season.
Premiered in 1843 at the Italian Theater in Paris, Gaetano Donizetti’s Don Pasquale is often considered the last great comic opera of the Italian bel canto school. Set in 19th century Rome, with an archetypal protagonist (the old man maddened with love, attracted by a younger woman), it first came to the room of the Teatro Colón in June 1910 and then returned in fifteen more seasons, the last in the summer of 1998.
This edition has the musical direction of the guest teacher Srba Dinić at the head of the Stable Orchestra of the Teatro Colón; stage direction by Fabio Sparvoli, set design and lighting by Enrique Bordolini and costume design by Imme Möller.
In addition to a cast with notable national and international singers such as Nicola Ulivieri, Italian bass baritone who played the role of Don Pasquale, the soprano Jaquelina Livieri in the skin of Norina, the tenor Santiago Ballerini as Ernesto, the baritone Darío Solari playing Doctor Malatesta and the bass Mario de Salvo as the Notary.
