“One of the true great Verdi baritones of our generation.” —BBC Music, on Alan Opie
What happens when an old knight who fancies himself a ladies’ man sends identical love letters to two married women? Plenty, as Sir John Falstaff (Alan Opie), Shakespeare’s drunken, but much loved rascal, discovers when the merry wives of Windsor (and a few furious husbands) decide to teach him a lesson. Verdi’s last opera shows the master at the peak of his power and displays some of his most inventive melodies. This stunning production is directed by Christian Räth and conducted by Sebastian Lang-Lessing in his WNO debut.
Making his WNO debut, baritone Alan Opie was nominated for the prestigious Laurence Olivier Award for Falstaff and hailed as “…one of the true great Verdi baritones of our generation.” –BBC Music
