The 2019 Live Cinema Series continues at Gesa Power House Theatre with a screening of Don Pasquale by The Royal Opera on Wednesday, November 20 at 6:00 p.m. This production is filmed live in London and rebroadcast internationally to select screens.
Royal Opera favorite Bryn Terfel heads the cast for this new production of Donizetti’s 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 Michieletto’s exhilarating production shows how contemporary the characters still are and how immediate and touching the story remains.
Filmed during a live event, the Live Cinema Series broadcasts offer audiences an equivalent to the best seat in the house, with incredibly detailed close-ups of the performers. This production of Don Pasquale is a co-production with Opéra national de Paris and Teatro Massimo, Palermo. Don Pasquale is performed in Italian with English surtitles.
This screening has an approximate runtime of 2 hours and 30 minutes, including one intermission. Beer, wine, popcorn, and snacks will be available for purchase, and may be taken into the theater.
Reserved seating tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students) will go on sale to the public on Monday, August 26, online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. For group ticket sales, please call 509-876-1662.
