"Coming timing is impeccable"

Bass Peter Strummer is a good Pasquale, singing all the notes smack in the middle, acting the role of the self-deluding Don with a combination of wealthy dignity and comic absurdity. His comic timing is impeccable, and he always remains sweet enough so that when Norina slaps him in Act III we, correctly, think she’s gone too far.
