  • ‘Don Pasquale’ enjoyable despite some early jitters


    Review > Next performance is Friday at the Santa Fe Opera

    Gaetano Donizetti’s Opera Buffa, “Don Pasquale,” was presented to an appreciative audience on opening night Saturday. Despite having a lead with only two days to prepare for her role, and a few first-night hiccups, this cast gives a performance that demonstrates the reasons this opera has enjoyed popularity since its premiere in 1843. The story of separated lovers and an old uncle with all of the money and control doesn’t feel formulaic; instead, it is entertaining and it quickly becomes obvious why this opera is considered such a high point for this form.
