Commemorating the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, the Bard's portly knight comes to the UW-Madison University Opera stage in the title role of Verdi's Falstaff. University Opera presents a new production of this final, outrageous jewel of the composer's rich career, his comic (and often chaotic) masterpiece about the scheming knight of Windsor. When Sir John Falstaff devises a plan to improve his love life and financial standing by wooing two different married women, he finds himself thrown into a series of comic misadventures and seductive slip-ups. Conducted by James Smith and directed by David Ronis, this production is an unashamed making of Elizabethan merriment in a grand manner only Verdi could orchestrate. Friday, November 11 - 7:30 PM; Sunday, November 13 - 3:00 PM; Tuesday, November 15 - 7:30 PM. For information on this performance click on this page's Visit Website link.
