The old Don gets his comeuppance in this hilarious “opera buffa” by Gaetano Donizetti.

Island City Opera opens it’s fourth season with Gaetano Donizetti’s exuberant comedy Don Pasquale.  Crafty Norina and her lovesick beau, Ernesto, outwit Ernesto’s swaggering uncle, the Don, with the help of the wily Dr. Malatesta.  Finally, an opera where the soprano comes out on top.

Don Pasquale will be sung in its original Italian with English super-titles.

Tickets are on sale online and through the Box Office at (510) 263-8060.


All performances are held at the Alameda Elks Lodge Ballroom, 2255 Santa Clara Avenue, Alameda CA
