At the centre of this most ebullient ensemble opera stands the inimitable Falstaff – the very essence of conviviality. Whilst you may well be familiar with Shakespeare’s tale of the merry wives of Windsor and their scheme to expose their suitor, you’ll find that the character of Sir John Falstaff – the original fat knight – takes on an even more vital dimension in Verdi’s final opera. With its score of mercurial invention, overflowing with vivacious wit and revelry, Falstaff overwhelms you with its life-enhancing insights into the human condition.
