Verdi’s sophisticated Shakespearean comedy returns to Opera Colorado for the first time in 30 years, brimming with backfired plans, failed disguises, and uproarious personalities. Don’t miss this hilarious finish to the 2017-18 season! This brilliant opera—Verdi’s last—features one of Shakespeare’s most memorable characters: the rotund and lovably oafish knight Falstaff, from the Bard’s Henry IV and The Merry Wives of Windsor. In this operatic take, Falstaff attempts to seduce two wealthy (and married) women—but they concoct their own scheme to expose him for a fool. Join us for this new production, featuring the Opera Colorado debut of acclaimed Icelandic baritone Olafur Sigurdarson.
