Notes & Reviews:
Through his music Donizetti elevates the story of the duped bachelor to a level which it was never to reach again. Donizetti far exceeds this tradition, however, because with his version he broadens the classic Italian opera buffa to a character comedy; the characters are no longer types but takes on individual images in their different and varied portrayals. Donizetti's music is the guarantee that Don Pasquale remains a comic opera sui generis.Notes & Reviews:
