Pasquale: Assuming Ian Dury was referring to Don Pasquale and not Joe, this is a picture of Luigi Lablache playing Don in 1843. Don Pasquale is a comic opera. There are obvious differences between Don & Joe Pasquale, one is quite amusing and often incorporates new and original material, the other is a comic with a squeaky voice.
