Description

The crowning glory of Verdi’s long and magnificent career, Falstaff is an unabashed celebration of Merry Olde England’s lusty days and bawdy nights. When the grandiose but impecunious Sir John Falstaff hatches a plot to improve both his love life and his finances, the result is a riot of comic chaos.

Superstar bass-baritone Bryn Terfel (website) makes his Los Angeles Opera stage debut as Falstaff, an uproarious performance that has set critics and audiences cheering at the Metropolitan Opera, the Salzburg Festival and in Sydney, Chicago, London and Munich. “Bryn Terfel’s Falstaff [is] irrepressibly larger than life, magnificently observed and magnetically sung… full of energy, humanity and quick-witted comic timing, all conveyed through a boundlessly rich tone.” (The Guardian)

The distinguished international cast also includes soprano Kallen Esperian (website) as Alice Ford, baritone Vassily Gerello as Ford, mezzo-sopranos Jane Henschel as Mistress Quickly and Milena Kitic (website) as Meg Page, soprano Celena Shafer (website) as Nanetta and tenor Daniil Shtoda as Fenton. Music Director Kent Nagano conducts a Los Angeles Opera revival directed by Stephen Lawless.
