Sir John Falstaff spends his days in his local, The Garter Inn, conning and cajoling his mates into emptying their purses to feed his insatiable appetite. On tap today: seducing two local ladies, Meg Page and Alice Ford. Anyone who looks that good is sure to be rich!
The ladies have a rather different idea, creating a delightful mash of sparkling comedy, deceit, retaliation and romance; there is after all a tab to be paid.
Following a riotous reception in 2015, Keel Watson and his cronies are back, bringing the energy and wit of this rip-roaring comedy to life. With sumptuous singing and a Shakespearean plot brought to a perfect, giggling last order, this gem of an opera is a must see!
Accompanied by Jonathan Musgrave on piano. Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
