Salt Marsh Opera presents on the Kate's stage


Experience the humor and liveliness of Verdi's Falstaff, the classic Italian comic opera based on Shakespeare's "The Merry Wives of Windsor." 

It tells the story of Sir John Falstaff, a roguish and overweight knight who sets his sights on seducing two wealthy married women. Unbeknownst to Falstaff, the two women are friends, and they quickly realize his intentions. In an effort to teach Falstaff a lesson, they devise a series of pranks and tricks to humiliate him.

As the story unfolds, the audience is treated to a lively and humorous tale of love, deceit, and mistaken identity. Verdi's music perfectly captures the mood of the opera, with soaring arias, playful duets, and lively ensemble pieces.

Falstaff is a true classic of Italian comic opera, and Salt Marsh Opera's production promises to be a memorable evening filled with laughter, music, and unforgettable performances. Whether you're a seasoned operagoer or new to the art form, Falstaff is not to be missed!

We invite you to join us for an evening that will leave you entertained and uplifted. Don't miss out on this chance to witness one of Verdi's greatest works performed live. Get your tickets now!
