Friday 13th October – “The Merry Wives of Windsor”

Join Falstaff himself for a medieval banquet amid the hilarity of Otto Niccolai’s operatic delight, The Merry Wives of Windsor. Revel in the boisterous energy of a medieval English inn and share a story or two with Shakespeare’s Fat Knight and his friends.

The weighty and boisterous Falstaff has fallen on hard times and, to cure his woes, has sent identical letters to woo both Mistress Page and Mistress Ford. The two wives agree to teach the overly amorous Falstaff a lesson he will not forget! Be part of the action in this operatic treasure sung in English, fully costumed and resplendent with beautiful, memorable and toe tapping tunes.

Tickets are $150 (+booking fee) and include a 90-minute fully costumed show, 3-course meal and a glass of sparkling on arrival. (Further drinks available for purchase at the venue).
