Act I 
The old bachelor Don Pasquale plans to marry in order to punish his rebellious nephew, Ernesto, who is in love with the young widow Norina. Pasquale wants an heir so he can cut the young man off without a penny. Dr. Malatesta suggests as a bride his own beautiful younger sister. The delighted Pasquale tells him to arrange a meeting at once. When Ernesto again refuses to marry a woman of his uncle’s choice, Pasquale tells him that he will have to leave the house, then announces his own marriage plans to his astonished nephew. With no inheritance, Ernesto sees his dreams evaporating. To make matters worse, he learns that his friend Malatesta has arranged Pasquale’s marriage.

Norina laughs over a silly romantic story she’s reading. She is certain of her own ability to charm a man. Malatesta, who is in fact plotting on her and Ernesto’s behalf, explains his plan to her: Norina is to impersonate the (nonexistent) bride and drive Pasquale to such desperation that he will be at their mercy. Norina is eager to play the role if it will help her win Ernesto.

第一幕
年老的唐‧帕斯誇萊打算結婚生子,以懲罰他叛逆的侄子埃內斯托想跟年輕寡婦諾麗娜情定終身。要是有子女繼承遺產,帕斯誇萊便能取消埃內斯托的繼承權。馬拉泰斯塔醫生答應介紹貌美的妹妹給帕斯誇萊作妻子。他心花怒放,馬上想要跟她見面。

埃內斯托又一次拒絕叔叔為他安排的婚事,並因此被趕出家門。帕斯誇萊宣告他自己準備結婚。失去遺產繼承權讓埃內斯托大感沮喪,得知他的好友馬拉泰斯塔負責安排帕斯誇萊婚事,埃內斯托更受打擊。

另一邊廂,諾麗娜被浪漫小說惹笑。她自信能迷倒任何男人。暗中在幫助埃內斯托和諾麗娜的馬拉泰斯塔解釋他的計劃:諾麗娜將裝成新娘,跟帕斯誇萊假結婚,逼使他萬劫不復。諾麗娜欣然接受,希望藉此確保她能與埃內斯托在一起。

Act II 
Ernesto, who knows nothing of Malatesta’s scheme, laments the loss of Norina. Pasquale appears, impatient to meet his bride-to-be. The old man is enchanted when Malatesta introduces the timid “Sofronia” and decides to get married at once. During the wedding ceremony, Ernesto bursts in and accuses Norina of faithlessness, but Malatesta quickly whispers an explanation. As soon as the wedding contract is sealed and Pasquale has signed over his fortune to his bride, Norina changes her act from demure girl to willful shrew. The shocked Pasquale protests, while Norina, Ernesto, and Malatesta enjoy the success of their plan.

第二幕
對馬拉泰斯塔的詭計毫不知情的埃內斯托,為失去諾麗娜感到心灰意冷。帕斯誇萊來到,急不及待要見準新娘。馬拉泰斯塔帶來害羞甜美的「索芙羅妮亞」,迷倒了帕斯誇萊,決定要馬上成婚。埃內斯托衝進婚禮現場,指控諾麗娜的不忠,但馬拉泰斯塔上前阻止,偷偷的告訴他真相。帕斯誇萊簽下結婚狀和財產轉移書後,諾麗娜瞬間變臉,從害羞女子變成刁蠻潑婦。震驚的帕斯誇萊大呼不滿,而諾麗娜、埃內斯托、和馬拉泰斯塔則在一旁享受成果。


Intermission
中場休息


Act III 
Pasquale’s new “wife” has continued her extravagant ways and amassed a stack of bills. When servants arrive carrying more purchases, Pasquale furiously resolves to assert his rights as husband. Norina enters, dressed elegantly for the theater, and gives him a slap when he tries to bar her way. He threatens her with divorce, while she, in an aside, expresses sympathy for the old man’s pain. As she leaves, she drops a letter implying that she has a rendezvous with an unknown suitor in the garden that night. The desperate Pasquale sends for Malatesta and leaves the servants to comment on working in a household fraught with such confusion. Malatesta then tells Ernesto to make sure that Pasquale will not recognize him when he plays his part in the garden that evening. Alone with Pasquale, Malatesta assures him they will trap “Sofronia” in a compromising situation.

In the garden, Ernesto serenades Norina. Their staged rendezvous is interrupted by Pasquale and Malatesta—too late to catch the young man, who slips into the house while “Sofronia” plays the innocent wife. Malatesta announces that Ernesto is about to introduce his own bride, Norina, into the house. “Sofronia” protests she will never share the roof with another woman and threatens to leave. Pasquale can hardly contain his joy and grants permission for Ernesto to marry Norina, with his inheritance. When Sofronia turns out to be Norina, Pasquale accepts the situation with good humor, gives the couple his blessing, and joins in observing that marriage is not for an old man.

第三幕
帕斯誇萊的新妻揮霍無度,每天過著豪華生活。眼見僕人搬進她購物買下的戰利品,帕斯誇萊誓要以夫君之名阻止妻子亂來。諾麗娜走進房間,穿戴艷麗,準備出發去劇院。帕斯誇萊不讓她出門,豈料被諾麗娜掌摑。他威脅要離婚,但諾麗娜內心只為帕斯誇萊感到同情。在離開之際,諾麗娜掉下一封信,內容是她晚上要跟秘密情人見面。帕斯誇萊把馬拉泰斯塔叫來,二人準備去捉姦。另一邊廂,馬拉泰斯塔提醒埃內斯托今晚假扮諾麗娜的「秘密情人」時要小心,不要被識破。

在花園中,埃內斯托對諾麗娜唱著小夜曲。他們的幽會被帕斯誇萊和馬拉泰斯塔搗破,但埃內斯托逃跑得快,而「索芙羅妮亞」則表示無辜。馬拉泰斯塔說埃內斯托將帶同未婚妻諾麗娜與他們同住,「索芙羅妮亞」馬上拒絕,聲稱不會接受與別的女人住在同一屋簷下,更威脅要搬走。帕斯誇萊為了擺脫惡妻,開心的接受了埃內斯托的婚事,甚至將遺產繼承權轉予給他。就在此刻真相大白,得知「索芙羅妮亞」就是諾麗娜,帕斯誇萊好脾氣的原諒眾人,並欣然接受結婚不適合他這個老頭子。
