Falstaff (Verdi) – Opera Bohemia



12th July 2018
7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Event Category:

Scotland’s professional touring company returns to Strathpeffer Pavilion with Verdi’s comic masterpiece Falstaff. Based on Shakespeare’s Merry Wives of Windsor, the opera revolves around the unlikely, plump protagonist, Sir John Falstaff and his farcical attempts to seduce women in order to gain access to their husbands’ wealth. With rhythmic pace and beautiful melodies, Falstaff is as energetic and exciting musically as it is dramatically. Award winning director Adrian Osmond and designer Kenneth MacLeod team up to create a dynamic new production with a star studded cast including former Scottish Opera emerging artists Andrew McTaggart and Hazel McBain and Opera Bohemia favourites Douglas Nairne and Catriona Clark. Sung in Italian with English surtitles and accompanied by leading Scottish pianist Andrew Brown, this promises to be a thrilling night at the opera.
