Giuseppe Verdi’s Falstaff -an adaptaion of Shakespeare’s The Merry Wives of Windsor.

“Mid Wales Opera is proud to announce the company debut of their new Artistic Director, Nicholas Cleobury, who, with director Martin Lloyd-Evans (Rigoletto 2005, La Boheme 2007 and The Marriage of Figaro 2009) and designer, Bridget Kimak, plans a fully staged and innovative production of Verdi’s final masterpiece. Accompanied by the Mid Wales Opera Chamber Orchestra, the band of singers assembled by Nicholas bring fantastic voices to this lyrical tale of young love and old foolishness. The opera adapted by Arrigo Boito from Shakespeare’s “The Merry Wives of Windsor” will be sung in an English translation by Amanda Holden.”
