Absolute Classics presents Opera Bohemia Falstaff

Theatre Royal, Dumfries


Absolute Classics presents Opera Bohemia Falstaff Thursday 9th August at 7.30pm(doors at 7.00pm) at Theatre Royal, Dumfries

Opera Bohemia


Based on Shakespeare's Merry Wives of Windsor, the opera revolves around the unlikely, plump protagonist, Sir John Falstaff and his farcical attempts to seduce women to gain access to their husbands' wealth. With rhythmic pace and beautiful melodies, Falstaff is as energetic and exciting musically as it is dramatically.

Award-winning director Adrian Osmond and designer Kenneth MacLeod team up to create a dynamic new production with a star-studded cast including former Scottish Opera emerging artists Andrew McTaggart and Hazel McBain and Opera Bohemia favourites Douglas Nairne and Catriona Clark accompanied by The Opera Bohemia Ensemble under the baton of Alistair Digges.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles.  


Falstaff, synopsis

The unlikely lothario Sir John Falstaff sees himself as a lady's man. Due to increasing debts he contrives to seduce the wives of rich men in order to feed his drinking and eating habits. Unfortunately for him, the women in question, Alice Ford and Meg Page are in toe and eager to lead him a merry dance. However Master Ford has also discovered Sir John's intentions and seeks his own revenge. Chaos and confusion ensues as the turbulent plot unfolds.
