OC Archives: Falstaff Finale (2018)

The cast of Verdi’s Falstaff (2018).

After his misadventures have come to an end and all is revealed, Sir John Falstaff (baritone Olafur Sigurdarson) laughs away his latest folly in the Act III Fugue, “Tutto nel mondo è burla … Tutti gabbati!” Verdi ends his final opera with an ode to humor, laughter, and not taking oneself too seriously.

This joyous double wedding features soprano Cynthia Clayton (Alice Ford), soprano Susannah Biller (Nanetta), mezzo-soprano Sandra Piques Eddy (Meg Page), mezzo-soprano Dana Beth Miller (Dame Quickly), tenor Mingjie Lei (Fenton), tenor Alex Mansoori (Dr. Caius), tenor Nathan Ward (Bardolfo), baritone Marco Nistico (Ford) and bass-baritone Andrew Hiers (Pistola). #SempreOC
