Main Street Opera presents Giuseppe Verdi's Falstaff

  • St. John Cantius 825 North Carpenter Street Chicago, IL, 60642 United States (map)

2016 is the celebration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's

death - "Falstaff" the opera is based on Shakespeare's

The Merry Wives of Windsor and scenes from his Henry IV.

Falstaff, the title character, is running out of money and looking for

a quick fix. So he sets his sights on two rich women, and writes

them 'enticing' love letters. But he doesn't fool anyone, and ultimately the

knight learns his lesson!
