Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Royal Opera favourite Bryn Terfel heads the cast for this new production of Donizettis comedy of domestic drama across two generations. The witty story of a middle-aged man whose supposed young wife runs rings around him with her own ulterior romantic purpose in mind has long delighted and surprised audiences, not least as presented with the sparkle of its music and the virtuoso skill of its performers. Damiano Michielettos exhilarating production shows how contemporary the characters still are and how immediate and touching the story remains.Sung in Italian with English subtitlesApproximate running time: about 2 hours 30 minutesMusic Gaetano DonizettiLibretto Giovanni Ruffiniand Gaetano DonizettiConductor Evelino PidDirector Damiano MichielettoSet designer Paolo FantinCostume designer Agostino CavalcaDon Pasquale Bryn TerfelNorina Olga PeretyatkoErnesto Ioan HoteaMalatesta Mariusz KwiecieLighting designer Alessandro CarlettiVideo designer rocafilmRoyal Opera ChorusOrchestra of the Royal Opera HouseCo-production with Opra national de Paris and Teatro Massimo, Palermo
