2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By I. Giles HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 2 Dec. 2011
This opera is a deceptively difficult work to put on if the characters are to retain our respect and our sympathy. If they lose either our respect or sympathy then the comic elements of the plot will fail and the story will descend into ridicule and unbridled unpleasantness.

It is therefore important to understand the respective roles of the 3 main characters in this story and how they should interact if the plot is to succeed as a comedy. This is not a straightforward comedy. It is also a social comment about relationships that might reflect some reality, especially relevant to the historical period the plot relates to.

To take the title role of Don Pasquale first: This is a successful and wealthy man living in some luxury. He is in his 70s but still has his mental faculties intact. He is astonishingly generous as shown in two ways - his lengthy support of his nephew, but much more importantly, in his marriage settlement when he insists on handing over considerable operational and monetary control to his new `wife'. He must be portrayed as having a sense of fairness and even humour so that, at the end, he is able to give his blessing to Norina and his nephew without rancour as well as resuming his good relations with the doctor. He must not be destroyed by humiliation therefore. Performances that focus on ridicule will not be successful as they destroy the required respect that a man in that social position would command.

Norina must be attractive and compliant enough to attract both the socially successful Pasquale.
