Sir John Falstaff – reprobate, chancer, relic of a bygone age – is finally about to get his comeuppance. Never short of a ploy to earn some ill-gotten cash, he sets his sights on two married women, plotting to trick them out of both their virtue and their husband’s fortunes. But the women are sharper than they look and soon turn the tables on the old drunkard to teach him a lesson he won’t forget…

Adapted from Shakespeare’s The Merry Wives of Windsor, Verdi’s swansong is a fast-paced, life-affirming comedy – a riotous romp that bubbles with irrepressible wit. McVicar takes inspiration from the Jacobean theatre, with exquisite 17th century costumes and striking set, all hand-crafted in Scottish Opera’s own workshops. His new production gets to the bones of Falstaff, balancing the laugh-out loud moments with a poignant tale of a childlike man who has outlived his own time – full of experience and regret but ultimately a glorious celebration of life itself.

Scottish Opera Music Director Stuart Stratford conducts The Orchestra of Scottish Opera and a chorus of singers, actors and children. They join the exceptional cast – a roll-call of current talent including Roland Wood (La bohème 2020) as Falstaff; Elizabeth Llewellyn (La bohème 2020), Louise Winter (In the Locked Room 2012) and Sioned Gwen Davies (The Diary of One Who Disappeared 2020) as the Merry Wives; and Jamie MacDougall (Ariadne auf Naxos 2018) as Bardolf.

Falstaff is being produced in line with Scottish Government guidelines and performances are subject to social distancing measures and guidelines at the time.
