Don Pasquale

When a wealthy old bachelor decides to take a pretty young wife, he is—this being opera—in for trouble. Especially when that wife is the enchanting Reri Grist. Fernando Corena sings the matrimonially inclined title hero, whose plan to disinherit his nephew—the suave, mesmerizing Alfredo Kraus—backfires with more than a little help from Tom Krause’s Dr. Malatesta.
