The laugh-out-loud funniest musical of the Broadway season. Yes it's another tune-filled spin on a hit movie...but this one is actually good

Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.

Such a joyful hoot. With its kinetic dancing, broad mugging and belty anthems, it makes you believe in musical comedy again.

Why See Metropolitan Opera - Falstaff?

Fun and games with Falstaff

Verdi's humorous final opera gets a 20th Century update in this production from Robert Carson, retaining all the buffoonish charm of the original. Marking the return of Ambrogio Maestri in the title role, we are transported not to the 16th Century but to the regal town of Windsor, just outside of post-Second World War London where Sir John attempts to woo his targets with predictably silly results.

What is the story of Falstaff?

Errant and perpetually drunk, the Knight Sir John Falstaff sets out to seduce two very wealthy widows and gain access to their fortunes. However when said widows get wind of this scheme, they decide to cook up their own dish of revenge. Full of laughter and light, with one of Verdi's merriest scores, don't miss this chance to see who Orson Welles called 'Shakespeare's greatest character' get up to his old tricks!

Did you know?

Clearly one of The Bard's favorite personalities, Falstaff appears in three of Shakespeare's plays and is mentioned in five.
