Royal Opera favourite Bryn Terfel heads the cast for this new production of Donizetti’s comedy of domestic drama across two generations. The witty story of a middle-aged man whose young wife runs rings around him – with her own ulterior romantic purpose in mind – has long delighted and surprised audiences.
Damiano Michieletto’s exhilarating production shows how contemporary the characters still are and how immediate and touching the story remains.
