A tale of greed. A travesty of stymied desires. An old knight’s ridiculous hunger to recapture his youth and gain riches through sexual liaisons is challenged when he meets his match in the form of two wily married women. This is the setting for Giuseppe Verdi’s operatic commedia lirica, Falstaff. Based on Shakespeare’s comedy The Merry Wives of Windsor, this insightful opera is a humorous celebration of love and life that can be enjoyed by all. Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
