Setting the stage for Don Pasquale

with Nina Scott Stoddart

Saturday, November 22 at 11:00 am

​With the upcoming production by Jeunesses Musicales of Donizetti’s comic opera ‘Don Pasquale’ the following week in Lunenburg, Maritime Concert Opera’s Artistic Director Nina Scott Stoddart will introduce us to the world of ‘comic opera’, or ‘opera buffa’. The opera itself is highly entertaining and is generally regarded as being the high point of the 19th century opera buffa tradition. Nina will share her considerable knowledge and good humour on the subject with us. A tasty brunch, including Adams & Knickle scallops, follows Nina’s presentation.
