Last updated: 17 June 2011

Don Pasquale is looking for a wife, and his friend Dr Malatesta suggests Sofronia, his make-believe sister. He hopes Don Pasquale will fall in love with her and will forget about disinheriting his nephew Ernesto for planning to marry Norina. Malatesta describes Sofronia as beautiful as an angel, fresh, innocent and virtuous.
