Bronx Opera and BronxNet present BxO's 2017 production of Giuseppe Verdi's great final opera, Falstaff. Based (mostly) on Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor, Falstaff tells the story of how Alice Ford and Meg Page turn Sir John Falstaff's plans against him. Falstaff is made to look like a fool, but ultimately reminds everyone that the joy is in sharing a joke with your friends, and with an audience.
This production was directed by Rod Gomez and conducted by Michael Spierman, with Scenery and Costumes by Meganne George, and Lighting by G. Benjamin Swope. The cast for this performance (from April 30, 2017) featured Caprice Corona, Aida Carducci, Halley Gilbert, John Callison, Stephen Steffens, Max Avery Vitigliano, Louis Riva, C. David Morrow and, as Falstaff, Michael Nansel, who we'll hear from at intermission (along with this performance's Alice, Caprice Corona).
Tune in to watch on Sunday, July 25th at 6:30 PM on BX OMNI Channels 67 Optimum/2133 FiOS in the Bronx and online at bronxnet.tv
