Join us for a special performance from members of the Butler Opera Center as they portray a selection of scenes from Verdi’s comical opera ’Falstaff.’
Falstaff revolves around the farcical (and generally thwarted) efforts of the “fat knight,” Sir John Falstaff, to seduce two married women to gain access to their husbands’ wealth. Shining with originality and composed when Verdi was nearly 80, this opera is proof that age took nothing from the master. You can see the opera performed in full when it opens at the McCullough Theatre on April 20th.
Presented in collaboration with the Butler School of Music & sponsored by KMFA, Classical 89.5
