Berkshire Opera Festival (BOF) returns to the Mahaiwe stage in 2021 with none other than one of the greatest comedic operas ever composed, Giuseppe Verdi’s Falstaff.
Falstaff is adapted by Arrigo Boito from Shakespeare’s The Merry Wives of Windsor and Henry IV. One of only two comedies written by Verdi and his final opera (written when Verdi was almost 80 years old), Falstaff tells the story of Sir John Falstaff’s fruitless search for money by writing love letters to wealthy women and the hilarious trouble that ensues.
