Michele Pertusi

A specialist of the Italian repertoire, Michele Pertusi discusses the character of Don Pasquale, a touching and authoritarian old man, caught up in the web of his own entourage. At once comic and dramatic, Donizetti's work is returning to the stage of the Palais Garnier. Michele Mariotti conducts this Neapolitan opera buffa, directed by Damiano Michieletto with Michele Pertusi in the title role.
