Based on Shakespeare's Merry Wives of Windsor, the opera revolves around the unlikely, plump protagonist, Sir John Falstaff and his farcical attempts to seduce women to gain access to their husbands' wealth. With rhythmic pace and beautiful melodies, it is as energetic and exciting musically as it is dramatically. Award winning director Adrian Osmond and designer Kenneth MacLeod team up to create a dynamic new production, sung in Italian with English surtitles and accompanied by The Opera Bohemia Ensemble.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Verdi’s Falstaff are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
