Boston Opera Collaborative presents Verdi's Falstaff
July 15 - July 24, 2011
In light of the glorious decadence and irrepressible excess of this ensemble show, stage director Heidi Lauren Duke and music director Mischa Santora have updated the piece to 1973 Italian-America; an ode to mafia dons, boogie nights, and the dusk of Aquarius! Scheming women, mis-matched lovers, and drunken debauchery will abound! Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
Falstaff Special Events:
Sunday, July 17: Post-performance talkback with directors Heidi Lauren Duke and Mischa Santora directly following performance.
Sunday, July 24: Pre-performance lecture, "Verdi and Comedy", with Dr. Helen Greenwald at 2:00pm.
