2013 YEAR OF ITALIAN CULTURE IN THE UNITED STATES: OPERA IN THE HEIGHTS PRESENTS DONINZETTI'S

Opera in the Heights presents Gaetano Donizetti’s Don Pasquale at Lambert Hall in the Houston Heights.  Marvel at the voices and laugh at Don Pasquale as he makes a fool of himself for love!

When Don Pasquale’s nephew Ernesto refuses his uncle’s selection of a bride, he decides to disinherit him and produce another heir to his fortune himself. When the old bachelor begins searching for a young wife, Ernesto, his girlfriend Norina, and Don Pasquale’s friend Dr. Malatesta conspire to teach Don Pasquale a lesson and to thwart his efforts to marry. So begins this comic opera which is full of fun and the incomparably tuneful and evocative music of Donizetti, a master of the bel canto style.

Opera in the Heights performs in an intimate theatre that seats only 300 people. Outstanding young singers and a live orchestra bring each opera to life in the intimate Lambert Hall.
