Opera North: Falstaff

Opera North Falstaff
With mountainous debts piling up, Sir John Falstaff resolves to relieve himself of financial embarrassment by seducing two wealthy wives of Windsor.

But these powerful women are wise to the ways of men and so, after plots and counterplots, disguises, deception and confusion – not to mention a dunking in the Thames – Falstaff gets his comeuppance.

After a career in which he had composed some of opera’s greatest tragedies, Verdi turned to Shakespeare’s great comic rogue as inspiration for his final masterpiece.

Director Jo Davies (Carousel, The Marriage of Figaro, Kiss Me, Kate) serves up a rich feast of an opera, fully worthy of the abundant personality of its hero.

This is a sustainable production.

There is a pre-show talk before each performance – tickets are free but must be pre-booked.
