Our 2018 touring production is
Otto Nicolai's comic masterpiece
The Merry Wives of Windsor
This wonderful opera has charmed audiences since its premiere in 1849. Based on Shakespeare, its larger-than-life central figure is the absurd Sir John Falstaff, roundly humiliated by the cunning wives of the title. It abounds in lyrical melodies (which you will probably recognise) and in fairy magic not so far from A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Catch it if you can!
