Yet I’ve a certain je ne sais quoi,
Sir John Falstaff is the ultimate human juxtaposition – old yet immature, hapless but manipulative, decent yet wickedly indecent. Also a man of many appetites, the lecherous Falstaff can’t resist his favorite vices – food, women and wine. Suddenly finding himself broke, he hatches a plot to cure his woes – he sends identical love letters to two married women to get his hands on their wealthy husbands’ purse strings. Falstaff doesn’t bank on getting found out and with the help of some ‘merry wives’, husbands and supernatural creatures, he gets his due and finds out the joke is on him.
A brilliant comedy based on a character from Shakespeare’s The Merry Wives of Windsor, this period piece boasts an updated twist, pops of color and designs from a modern point of view for modern tastes.
Performed in Italian with English Opera Text projected above stage.
