In this comic masterpiece, the old bachelor Don Pasquale has agreed to will his fortune to his nephew, Ernesto, as long as he approves of the young man's bride. When Pasquale disapproves of his nephew’s current love, Norina, he disinherits Ernesto, deciding instead to find himself a young wife and produce an heir of his own. Dr. Malatesta, Pasquale’s family doctor, hears about the situation and hopes to aid his young friend Ernesto. Malatesta’s scheme is to have Ernesto’s beloved, Norina, disguise herself as “Sophronia”. Norina disguises herself as the girl of Pasquale's dreams and marries the coot; which doesn’t lead to a ‘happily ever after’.
