Merry wives and mischief

Join Shakespeare’s beloved rogue in this irreverent comedy that will have you rolling with laughter. Falstaff may be down on his luck, but he still thinks he’s the most charming man in Windsor. When he targets two wealthy wives he believes he’s hit the jackpot, but these women are no pushovers and they concoct a plan to teach Falstaff a lesson he’ll never forget…

Verdi’s score bursts with energy and wicked humour. With its unforgettable characters and unexpected twists, this new production promises to be a riot!
