Small picture of Donizetti




Donizetti's Don Pasquale

Internationale Opera Producties

Poland, Netherlands and Belgium tour, Autumn 2006

The opera was directed and designed by Walter Neiva and the conductor was Ricardo Kanji.

The opera was double cast:-

Don Pasquale - Jerzy Mahler / Przemyslaw Firek,

Norina - Alice Gulipian / Marilyn Clément,

Dr. Malatesta - Mariusz Godlewski / Sinan Vural,

Ernesto - Dariusz Pietrzykowski / Sylwester Smulczynski.

The pictures below were provided by the director, Walter Neiva This production used the saxophone rather than the trumpet to introduce Ernesto's “Povero Ernesto”, which Sax claimed Donizetti originally planned to do. On balance it seems unlikely, as indicated in the article Donizetti and Sax in Newsletter 98.
