Please find below photographs from a number of performances of Donizetti's Don Pasquale at the Théâtre des Champs-Elyseés, Paris.  The Society chairman, Alexander Weatherson, who saw the final performance commented that it was wonderful to hear Donizetti acclaimed with such a brilliant triumph, with truly fantastic applause - which was seldom the case sadly enough in Paris in his lifetime!
