Don Pasquale : A rootin’ Tootin’ romp in the Wild West!

David Gately’s well loved concept of Gaetano Donizetti’s classic Buffo Opera Don Pasquale is an evening of fun, laughs and amazing tunes sure to satisfy everyone. Join us as we saddle up to tell the story of Don Pasquale, an ornery old thing whose desire to be married soon fades when his much younger wife takes the reins and drives his life out of control. It is a classic Spaghetti Western complete with Gun totin’ cowboys, saloon gals, bubble baths and even a Mariachi band to help set the stage for this evening of light-hearted fun. Sung in Italian with English supertitles.

Set in the 1880s, just 40 years later than the original setting, this production has been entertaining audiences for over 2 decades and never fails to keep ‘em rollin’ in the aisles! FUN FACT! There used to be an old general store in downtown Tucson that opened in the 1880’s. It’s owner and proprietor was an Italian immigrant whose name was – Pasquale!
