Opera Memphis closes out its 2011–12 season with Gaetano Donizetti’s Don Pasquale, which observes the tradition of opera buffa by serving up a comedic appraisal of love, deception, and familial feuds in 19th-century Rome. Having performed alongside renowned singer Plácido Domingo, soprano Monica Yunus lends her gold-plated pipes to the role of Norina, a young girl who plays a pivotal role in a domestic tug of war between the title character and his disobedient nephew, Ernesto. With the help of his friend, Dr. Malatesta, the bachelor Don Pasquale devises a scheme to wed Norina to cut off Ernesto from the family fortune, but he remains ignorant of the fact that Ernesto and Norina are romantically involved and plan to exact revenge. The actors embody stock commedia dell’arte characters amid the whimsical euphony, including the frazzled patriarch, the young lovers, and the manipulative trickster. Like many classical operas and any good comic-book store, the performance will feature English supertitles, ensuring viewers won’t miss a single note or zany plot twist.

Chartered in 1956, Opera Memphis first peeled back its curtain nearly 70 years after the Orpheum Theatre shot skyward on the corner of Maine and Beale. What began as a vaudevillian venue has survived multiple facelifts—including a complete rebuild in 1928—that has allowed it to remain an impressive-looking institution, even through the lenses of today’s unforgiving HD traffic cameras.
