excellent

I usally find Don Pasquale annoying..with the soprano too cute,the bass too decrepit...but this Pasquale from Vienna is very good on all fronts.Good conducting, and excellent singing/The bass and tenor are known quantities,but the big surprises were the unknown to me soprano and baritone, both of whom were enjoyable throughout.Silly staging,but not bad enough to seriously bother the viewer.

Awesome!

I laughed out loud during this one! It broke my laugh-o-meter! Great cast! Florez was fantastic, as usual; I love him! and Pertusi was really good at comedy, to my surprise. What I want to know is, "Where are all these glamorous sopranos coming from?" The one who played Norina is gorgeous and immensely talented! Malatesta was awesome also. Pasquale's two "servants" were an extra bonus. The updated production worked well without the usual distortions. Recommended!

Neat New Staging

This is a very good production with a soprano I was not familiar with, but whose talent is exceptional. JDF is, of course, fantastic, but so is Pertusi. Sound is first rate and the picture, while very slightly blurred on occasion, is also quite good.
