Welsh baritone Bryn Terfel takes the title role in this production of Verdi's last opera, based on Shakespeare's 'The Merry Wives of Windsor' and 'Henry IV'. The fun-loving Falstaff has his eye on two married women and writes a love letter to each of them. The two women compare letters and decide the writer must be punished for his roguish ways, drawing up a plot which will see him hiding from angry husbands in a basket, getting thrown into the Thames, and dressing up in a pair of antlers for a secret midnight tryst in the middle of the forest.
