On Saturday 30th June, Sydney's favourite boutique opera company, Opera Bites, is proudly presenting an exciting family-friendly production of the classic comic opera Don Pasquale.
Introduce your little ones to the spectacular world of live opera with this fully costumed, condensed opera experience!
Presented in beautifully restored Redfern Town Hall, this energic, lively matinee performance will be sung in English, making it ideal for opera newbies and seasoned opera-goers alike.
Don Pasquale is an 'opera buffa' and is regarded as one of Gaetano Donizetti's most brilliant and popular operas. It is a vivacious romp through mistaken identity and all ages will delight in this farcical tale of Don Pasquale's attempts to secure a wife and disinherit his nephew, Ernesto. Meanwhile, the scheming Dr Maletesta is on hand to ensure that feisty Norina marries the man of her dreams.
Jam-packed with melodic and memorable tunes, Don Pasquale features many of the opera world's most cherished arias and ensembles.
The 90-minute performance (presented in two 45 minute acts) is a truly accessible opera experience with something for everyone.
The matinee (2.00pm-4.00pm) is ideal for families and those who don't like chilly winter nights!
One show only! Book your tickets now at Eventbrite - prices start at $25!
Redfern Town Hall is within walking distance from Redfern train station or Central train station. Bus routes 309 and 310 are also on the corner of Pitt Street and Redfern Street.
